CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A college in Vermont claims energy drinks are linked to "unsafe behavior" and will ban on-campus sales of the beverages.
Dining Service officials at Middlebury College say energy drunks such as Red Bull and 5-Hour Energy will no longer be available for purchase at any of the College's retail locations.
According to the school's newspaper, a campus presentation argued that energy drinks "promote poor academic tendencies and foster a culture of stress." The decision will take effect March 7 and was announced in a handout circulated on campus.
From the Middlebury Campus paper:
The ban does not prohibit students from purchasing the drinks at an off-campus location and consuming them on campus.
