A proposed bill in South Carolina would ban the sale of energy drinks to anyone under the age of 18.  The bill was introduced by Rep. Leon Howard and the parents of 16-year-old Davis Cripe, who died a year ago (in April 2017) after ingesting a large amount of caffeine.  NOTE: The USDA recommends that ‘adults’ consume no more than 400 milligrams of caffeine a day – an average of four to five cups of coffee.

A single energy drink can contain up to 300 milligrams.
