"Snorting chocolate" has now arrived in the United States.

The snortable chocolate powder is marketed as a stimulant and stress reducer.

It's called Coco Loko, and their CEO says it contains mostly raw cacao powder, along with common energy drink ingredients.

He says it's been available online for a month, and is slowly making its way into smoke and tobacco shops.

The product is for people over age 18.

A spokesman for the American College of Emergency Physicians says snorting the product could cause harm to the lungs.

While the sale of Coco Loko is legal, Senator Chuck Schumer is urging the Federal Drug Administration to launch an investigation into its safety.
