FDA to review inhalable caffiene

From New York Post:
BOSTON — US Food and Drug Administration officials plan to investigate whether inhalable caffeine sold in lipstick-sized canisters is safe for consumers and if its manufacturer was right to brand it as a dietary supplement.

AeroShot went on the market late last month in Massachusetts and New York, and it's also available in France. Consumers put one end of the grey-and-yellow plastic canister in their mouths and breathe in, releasing a fine powder that dissolves almost instantly.

AeroShot inventor, Harvard biomedical engineering professor David Edwards, says the product is safe and doesn't contain taurine and other common additives used to enhance the caffeine effect in energy drinks.

AeroShot didn't require FDA review before hitting the US market because it's sold as a dietary supplement. But Sen. Charles Schumer said he met with FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret Hamburg and she agreed to review the safety and legality of AeroShot.

"I am worried about how a product like this impacts kids and teens, who are particularly vulnerable to overusing a product that allows one to take hit after hit after hit, in rapid succession," Schumer said.
He planned to announce the AeroShot review on Sunday.

Inhalable caffeine? Seems like a pretty ballin' idea. I mean it is the logical progression. Everyone wants drugs pure and portable. Caffeine? Fuck coffee and espresso just spray that shit in your mouth and buzz on player.

It's funny that the FDA is reviewing it now because I hope their conclusion is that this shit is healthier than soda. I mean there is caffeine but no high fructose corn syrup or any of that shit. Low calorie coffee buzz, they should hire me to lead the marketing division. I'm going to search for this product, review to come.
