Adverse health effects from the consumption of energy drinks by children, adolescents, and young adults is a growing source of concern.

State and local governments and non-governmental organizations can play an important role by raising awareness about the issue and enacting policies to reduce consumption of energy drinks.

This series of mini-case studies highlights examples of policies enacted by school districts, high-school and collegiate athletic associations, and a state government. The policies range from an individual school handbook policy to a district-wide ban to a national athletic association policy. The formulation of these policies was covered by local and national media and had the co-benefit of raising awareness about energy drinks in communities.
