Little Smuckie Schumer knows he needs to distract the sheeple that blindly follow his every word because the Russia thing is a loser.

So now snort-able chocolate is the new bogie man.

 

There are any number of things the average, or even not-so-average, American can worry about these days. If you’re a Trump detractor, there is always Russia.

The FDA hasn’t said yet whether it has the authority to regulate the snuff-like chocolate.

This may very well prove to be a problem, but there is very little evidence that it is at the moment. The ingredients in the powder are not uncommon:

Coco Loko, which sells tubs of the powder for $19.99, did not return a call seeking comment. The product containsGINGKO BILOBA, Taurine and guarana, ingredients often found in energy drinks.

Sen. Schumer may be onto something here, but he is most likely following the Capitol Hill addiction to making sure it has a hand in every aspect of our lives.
