Citing health and safety concerns, University of New Hampshire will stop selling energy drinks
DURHAM, N.H. (AP) ' The University of New Hampshire is going a step further than other campuses that have banned alcoholic energy drinks by targeting nonalcoholic versions as well.
Beginning in January, the university will no longer sell Full Throttle, Red Bull, Moxie Energy and NOS from vending machines or at its seven dining halls, cafes and convenience stores.
University officials said Monday that they were unaware of other colleges having taken the same step. But they say at least one other school ' Mount St. Mary's College in Los Angeles ' has a policy of not selling energy drinks in its dining halls but does sell them from vending machines.
University officials say the products are legal and safe when consumed as intended but can be dangerous when overused or mixed with alcohol.
