I think it's stupid that she is wasting her money trying to sue monster. They have all the proper warning labels on their drinks and they have been approved by the FDA. It's not Monster's job to stop over consumption... and that wasn't even the cause of death, that was a pre-existing heart condition.

The way I see it...just because the beverage exists, doesn't mean you gotta drink it. It was obviously the kids choice. I see way younger people drink these on the streets. I won't be catching my 14 year old with one, she knows the dangers of them. If only parents knew...

Your wrong. Monster doesn't have some sort of warning label(I just looked in my fridge). Although I have a very strong opinion that they should. This goes with Rockstar and Redbull.

In a way it's the parents fault....I know if I had a 14 year old they wouldn't be drinking 2 a day

I guess the kid could hide it or drink it at school

Edit: thought it said 14, but it's 19
nevermind

I coulda swore Monster had a label that said something about over consumption on the can.

But 2 a day is ridiculous for anybody. i feel my heart speed up after just drinking half a can.

There is a "warning" on the cans. It reads ...Consume responsibly: Not recommended for children, people who are sensitive to caffeine, pregnant women or women who are nursing...

I feel like that's all the warming that is needed for the case to get thrown out. If you drink multiple a day, with drink responsibly posted on the side of the can, you are liable for any issues it may cause. Just like alcohol.

I thinhk it is a poor excuse for the parents to get some jingle in their pockets, sure the kid dies, he is an adult and can make his own decisions... I hope the parents loose their asses on that case
