Guam AG supports ban on "binge in a can"

Guam - Guam Attorney General Leonardo Rapadas joined 16 other attorneys general across the country expressing concern to the Pabst Brewing Company about their BLAST alcoholic beverage. The product contains 12% alcohol that comes in a 24-ounce can, which Rapadas says is equivalent to five beers.

Rapadas says the packaging could lure underage drinkers, telling KUAM News, "The packaging when you look at it almost looks like a juice box and that then gets the marketing down into the younger set, 17 and below or the 20 and below who cannot legally drink and as you go further down its possible you can get way underage drinkers drinking this product."

He adds they are also concerned that the beverage will result in alcohol poisoning and more crimes being committed. The attorneys general have asked the Illinois brewing company to significantly reduce the number of servings of alcohol.
