Snortable chocolate is so dangerous that its health effects must be investigated by the feds, Sen. Charles Schumer is urging.
Coco Loko — a raw cacao powder infused with a “special energy blend” — is marketed like a drug and should be closely regulated, Schumer demanded in a letter to the Food and Drug Administration Saturday.
Teens have been buzzing for months about the caffeinated powder but little is known about its health effects, the lawmaker said.
“I can’t think of a single parent who thinks it is a good idea for their children to be snorting over-the-counter stimulants up their noses,” Schumer blasted. “This suspect product has no clear health value.”
The FDA hasn’t said yet whether it has the authority to regulate the snuff-like chocolate.
