Some are calling for a ban of powdered alcohol. That is the wrong approach. Palcohol should be approved, taxed and regulated just like liquid alcohol. Palcohol has so many positive uses including:
Palcohol will be made in two different formulations, a Beverage Formulation (ingestible) and an Industrial Formulation (non-ingestible).
Beverage Formulation: In its beverage formulation, Palcohol is for the legitimate and responsible enjoyment by lawful consumers and has several applications:
Industrial Formulation (non-ingestible): The industrial formulation, different from the consumer formulation, has many possible positive uses in industry. People have contacted us with several in mind. Of course, until Palcohol gets government approval, we can not know exactly what the applications will be. Examples include:
Unfortunately, the media coverage has focused on the perceived negative aspects of powdered alcohol as a result of ignorance about the product. Some of the inaccurate statements are:
1. People will snort it and get drunk.
Not true. It's painful to snort due to the alcohol. Second, it's impractical. It takes approximately 60 minutes to snort the equivalent of one shot of vodka. Why would anyone do that when they can do a shot of liquid vodka in two seconds?
2. Powdered alcohol will make it easier to sneak into venues.
Not true. A package of Palcohol is 4" x 6"....almost five times bigger than a 50ml bottle of liquid alcohol so Palcohol is much harder to conceal.
3. It will be easier to spike a drink.
Not true. Palcohol does not dissolve instantly in liquid and would take over a minute of stirring to dissolve the equivalent of one shot of alcohol into a drink.
4. Kids will get a hold of it easier.
Not true. Palcohol is sold wherever liquid alcohol is sold and the same rules apply, you must be 21 years or older to buy it.
So you can see, powdered alcohol doesn't make irresponsible or illegal use any easier than liquid alcohol.
