High School Students Suspended for Eating Caffeinated Mints

Energy Mints

A group of high school students in Pekin, Illinois were suspended last week after school officials suspected the mints they were eating were actually illegal drugs.

Apparently the students were eating Revive energy mints. According to EnergyFiend.com, each mint contains 101 milligrams of caffeine along with guarana, green tea, ginseng, acai, mangosteen and goji. The Revive brand is endorsed by several MMA fighters and fitness pageant contestants.

The administration was worried because the students were showing signs of elevated heartbeat. Now I have been in the principals office before, I am pretty sure if I was not on energy mints I would still have an elevated heartbeat.

The sad part about this story is that these students missed homecoming because of the mints. The students tried to explain they were just mints, but administration did not believe the story.

School officials later admitted they did not know if the chewable, unmarked mints were, in fact, illegal drugs but upheld the suspensions anyway, saying the teens displayed “gross misconduct for taking an unknown product.”
