A Florida company has created "Coco Loko, a “snortable” chocolate powder being marketed as a drug-free way to get a buzz."

The effects of the cacao-based powder, he [Nick Anderson, found of Legal Lean] said, last about 30 minutes to an hour, and are “almost like an energy-drink feeling, like you’re euphoric but also motivated to get things done.”

“The question is, what are the risks of doing it?” said Dr. Andrew Lane, director of the Johns Hopkins Sinus Center. “There’s no data, and as far as I can tell, no one’s studied what happens if you inhale chocolate into your nose."

I can't imagine what it is like to be a parent or a young adult these days. How do you talk to your kids about putting chocolate up your nose? Won't Hershey's Cocoa work? It's a lot cheaper.

Then and now, that kinda thing is just uncouth, doncha think?!
