If the ad was a picture of a large mixed drink with the caption 'Have your breath mints ready because this drink is worth risking a DWI for!' everyone would be incensed.  IMO, it's a similar concept just without the associated taboo (and risk to bystander lives).

Aside from all the other ridiculousness...

I wish people would realize that an EpiPen is not a "Get out of death free" card.  You can use it, you can even use more than one and be in the parking lot of the ER when you do that and sometimes it still won't be enough.
Allergic to soy, egg, tomato, apple, cherry, peach, pear, nectarine, canteloupe, watermelon, severe OAS to others, insect bites (severe to horseflies), various drugs, way too many environmental allergens, and asthma.
