§ 5. Findings. The General Assembly finds that the United States Food and Drug Administration
issued a warning concerning powdered pure caffeine that companies market to consumers. The powder, often sold in bulk, is nearly 100% pure caffeine. Caffeine powder is easily purchased online, including on websites that sell vitamins
and supplements. Because the product is unregulated by the United States Food and Drug Administration,
health experts indicate that it is nearly impossible to know what dose of caffeine
an individual is consuming, even if the powder is measured carefully. While caffeine in small quantities is generally not dangerous for human consumption,
large quantities of caffeine can be extremely dangerous, even fatal. The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages the consumption of caffeine and related
stimulants by children and adolescents.
