Four Loco: blackout in a can?

Four Loco, invented in 2005 by Ohio State grads, is a controversial drink sometimes called "blackout in a can" or "liquid crack."  Sold in large cans, it has as much alcohol as six cans of light beer, as much caffeine as two cups of coffee, and as many calories as a McDonalds cheeseburger happy meal with a Coke.
