Assembly Passes Bill To Ban Caffeinated Alcoholic Drinks
On Monday, the California Assembly voted 43-24 to approve a bill (SB 39), by Sen. Alex Padilla (D-Los Angeles), that would outlaw the production and sale of alcoholic beverages that contain caffeine. The Senate, which passed the bill in April, now will reconcile differences with the Assembly version of the legislation.Â
