Should energy drinks be banned?

Do you ever drink energy drinks? Why do you? 
It is a question that may seem a bit pointless, but it is interesting to think about why so many young people feel the need to get energy from caffeinated drinks such as Red Bull, and why this trend has started.

Across the UK, the numbers of young people drinking energy drinks on a daily basis has risen to such an extent (and the health implications have become so worrying) that the UK Government has stepped in with a call to ban the sale of energy drinks to children.  Is this a good idea do you think? Why? Why not?
