Marley Makes Jersey Sick
Some of the most famous words Bob Marley sang were, "Don't worry about a thing/'Cause every little thing gonna be alright." It turns out everything wasn't alright for several students in New Jersey who fell ill after consuming a relaxation drink named after the reggae icon. Dubbed Marley's Mellow Mood, the drink is supposed to reduce stress but "may cause drowsiness and is not intended for children." The drink has since been removed from the shelves on several New Jersey school campuses. While details on how sick the children became were not revealed, the new cafeteria motto across New Jersey's schools may be "no soft drink no cry."
