University Of Rhode Island Latest To Ban Four Loko

SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. -- The University of Rhode Island has become the latest college to ban a new drink that packs a powerful combination of alcohol and caffeine.

The university's president on Wednesday banned Four Loko from campus.

Four Loko is often referred to as "blackout in a can" because it contains more than four times as much alcohol as an ordinary beer and is relatively cheap.
