Red Bull Cola energy drink banned for containing cocaine

Cocaine was removed from Coca Cola and replaced with Caffine in 1903.  But in a recent test in Germany the "high"ly popular RED BULL was found to contain traces of cocaine.  One might say that it is the REAL Coke.

Officials in Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Thuringia and Rhineland-Palatinate have banned the drink after health officials noted trace amounts of cocaine in cans of the cola.

"The coke is not harmful, but it violates food law," said Thomas Schulz, a spokesman for the Thuringian Ministry of Health.

The North Rhine-Westphalia Institute for Health and Work (LIGA) found traces of cocaine, from a leaf stem that had supposedly had all the cocaine extracted from it. Therefore, according to the ministry, the cola should not be be classified as a food product, but falls instead under the jurisdiction of the German Narcotics Act.
