Red Bull Cola has cocaine; German states banned product

Your energy drink that gives you extra kick is now being pulled out in different states in Germany. Considering for a nationwide ban, German authorities found traces of cocaine on the high-energy drink Red Bull.
According to local reports, the cocaine comes from a process of de-cocainized extract of coca leaf in the drink, which despite its name, doesn’t actually take all the cocaine out. The process also means that Red Bull Cola has to be classified as a narcotic and needs a special license for sale.
States of Hesse and North-Rhine Westphalia have ordered retailers to stop selling the beverage.

Still the Red Bull company expresses that coca leaf extract were used worldwide as a natural flavoring and considered safe in the EU as well as in the US.
