    Maybe it is a state-by-state difference, but in NY most soft-drinks show the caffeine content per can or per 8 oz. serving. Monster has about 10mg per ounce, so two 24 ounce cans is about the same as two 16 ounce coffees from Starbucks.

    Contains the caffeine of five regular soft drinks.Allegedly drank two 24 oz, cans in 24 hrs.Also has been reported that not only five deaths but an addition thirty four hospitalizations of teens due to this and yes it is NOT covered by legislation requiring type of or amount of contents.

    I agree it's a problem, but there's no legislation that can effectively address this. Bump MaxVirtus regarding parents teaching their kids some sense.

    Kids:

    Don't run with scissors.
    Don't overdose on caffeine.
    etc

    Bump KCecala.
    This is sad and tragic. I believe parents need to talk to their kids about the dangers of consuming too much caffeine. You can't always monitor them... it's all about trust and honesty.

    Incidentally this drink has caused a total of five deaths of children. Maybe it isn't as safe as they say.

    I think the biggest problem with these drinks is they are available to minors. Most young kids are attracted to the feeling they get from caffeine. This is such a tragedy for the family.

    Me too mz66! I don't know if I'm truly addicted to energy drinks. I drink at least two a day. I mainly buy it in a powder form from Wal-Mart and Kroger. Yeah, I"m addicted to caffeine. I'll take my chances.

    At the rate that I have been known to consume these I should be dead several times over.

    You've got to be careful when consuming such products.
