My opinion

I think energy drinks are ok but people should not drink them irresponsibly. People should drink a maximum of 2 or 3 a week because if that's all you drink you might get withdrawal symptoms if you don't drink it. But I don't think anyone under 18 should drink an energy drink but if you do you should at least be a teenager and drink it responsibly.
