L.A. May Be First City to Ban Energy Drinks

Los Angeles may become the nation's first city to ban some people from getting a pick-me up.  

L.A. City Councilman Bernard Parks is proposing the city ban minors from purchasing the high octane beverages.  

He's concerned about the effects the drinks may have on people who have them regularly.  

Critics of the drinks say there might be an issue of impaired judgment by amped up police officers.  

On Monday, the city council committee ordered a study to be done, and expects to know more in about a month.
