Write to your congressman: Don't Pass AB 1598

Here is the bill:

This bill would prohibit the import, production, manufacture,
distribution, or sale of caffeinated malt beverages, as defined, at
retail locations within the state.
I believe the spirit of this bill is to prevent brewers and distillers from creating alcoholic drinks. If you take it to its logical conclusion, and I don't see any provisions to the contrary, it seems to me that making a vodka-Redbull or a rum and Coke is also creating an alcoholic drink that contains caffeine and would by law be outlawed.

You can write to California Assembly Member Jim Beall and let him know that you do not support this measure.
