DETROIT (WWJ) – Michigan liquor regulators say flavored malt beverages are back on store shelves without stimulants.

The Michigan Liquor Control Commission says the drinks have the same labels but are missing caffeine and other stimulants. They were banned in early December as health risks. Authorities fear young people acting as “wide-awake” drunks.

The commission still is concerned about the alcohol content. A typical can is about 24 ounces and contains 12 percent alcohol, the equivalent of two to three beers.
