Doctors concerned over new 'snortable' chocolate powder: Sharrie Williams reports during Action News at 4:30 p.m. on July 6, 2017. (WPVI)

Doctors are raising concern about a new product some people are using to get high.

Coco Loko is a snortable chocolate powder.

An Orlando-based company is marketing the powder as a drug-free way to get a buzz.

It contains many of the same ingredients found in energy drinks, which have been shown to raise blood pressure and cause heart palpitations in some cases.

The effects could be intensified if a person inhales those stimulants.

The FDA has not yet evaluated the product.
