Posted: Updated:


As the Feds gear up to ban caffeinated alcohol beverages, local politicians are railing against the devastating effects of the drink. Brooklyn Assemblyman Felix Ortiz hopped on the Four Loko meme train and offered to use himself as a test subject to prove how potent the "blackout in a can" can be.

Ortiz, who had previously battled the great salt threat in New York City, was driven by NBC News 4 to a local hospital and drink 2.5 cans of Four Loko while a doctor monitored his blood pressure and heart rate. Spoiler alert: he proceeds to get drunk and promptly vomits.
