Hey dude! There is cocaine in your Red Bull

REDBULL Fellow adrenaline junkies, Red Bull Anonymous meetings may get crowded in South Beach.

Austria's health ministry said traces of cocaine have been found in samples of Red Bull Cola energy drinks.

Health officials claim the drink contains 0.4 micrograms of cocaine per liter -- making the hypercaffeinated drink a narcotic under German law.

Forbes is reporting, the Food and Drug Administration of Jordan and lawmakers in Germany are banning the sale of Red Bull.

Executives at Red Bull (who also promote extreme sports) said the drink is safe and the "de-cocainized" coca leaf extract is used as flavoring. The company is getting ready to launch a powerful Energy Shot. The amount of micrograms for liter in the formula has yet to be announced.
