Not really, unless you're dehydrated. Urine is sterile as it leaves the body, but after it's been exposed to the elements in the air after awhile bacteria grows (like milk for instance).

Also, as with most bodily fluids, certain diseases are present in urine. So, you wouldn't want to drink the pee of someone with, say, AIDS. use common sense in that regard. Any medication or recreational drugs present in a person's system may also be transferred through urine.

Otherwise, as far as the consumption of bodily fluids go, urine is fairly safe.
