SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Legislation designed to ban the availability of caffeinated alcoholic beverages in California has become law.
California governor Jerry Brown signed SB 39, a bill drafted by Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Pacoima, that prohibits the production and sale of caffeinated beer beverages at retail locations throughout the state. With the passage of SB 39, California joins Massachusetts, New York, Washington, Utah, Michigan and Kansas in banning these drinks.
The bill was first introduced in late 2010.
