College kids these days are willing to pay high prices for Four Loko. What's wrong with Natty?

What's right with Natty? That's a better question.

It's watered down with little taste and alcohol content. For just a little more money you can get something much better.

Worst of all, however, is being associated with the people who drink it.

I wonder how much the liquor and beer industry is behind the banning of Loko.

It would seem to me that one $2 can of Loko equating a $5 6-pack of beer would be bad for the beer business.

Mind you, Marijuana was never banned to protect the population either.

People aren't going to pay $15 or $20 a can for a four loko. The reason I buy them, and others, is because they cheap and get you hammered, but I would never pay more than $3 for one.
