I sure don't need LESS energy.......

While perusing a magazine, I noticed a commentary about this "interesting" beverage:
Yes, its called “Drank” and its an “extreme relaxation beverage”. The slogan on their website:
So remember…. Just “Slow Your Roll” with Drank.

Here’s some more info:
“Drank anti-energy drink finds its roots in "purple drank," a slang term for a concoction popularized in the South by the hip-hop community, according to Wikipedia. Purple drank typically includes promethazine-codeine cough syrup which produces a stoned sedation. Promethazine is an antihistamine while codeine is an opiate narcotic. The syrup is colored purple hence "Purple drank."

However, Drank's active ingredients are all legal, and can be found at health and vitamin shops. Drank's press release says, "From design to production, every aspect of this calming drink was inspired by today’s popular hip hop artists who embrace the much sought-after hip hop lifestyle that encourages people to capture a stress-free state of mind."”

Ah, now I see. Who knew “stress-free state of mind” is also known as “stoned sedation”??

I think I might just do some yoga and drink a glass of wine, how 'bout you?
