Howard County bans Four Loko

By Washington Post editors

Baltimore City and Howard County said Tuesday that they will fine merchants who refuse to stop selling caffeine-infused alcohol drinks — a move designed to add teeth to state and federal warnings about the popular beverages, the Baltimore Sun reports.

The city's ban on Four Loko and similar drinks, which goes into effect after 5 p.m. Thursday, calls for fines of up to $1,000. The county's ban, which goes into effect a day earlier, has staggered fines of up to $500.
