Powdered Alcohol Palcohol Ban

Game Off: Powdered Alcohol Hits Legal Roadblock

It did sound a little too good to be true.

As we reported Monday, there’s a new alcohol in powdered form, aptly titled Palcohol. It’s like EmergenC, add a little mix to your water for something to make you feel better — rage-your-face-off better. Many people were surprised to hear the product gained the government‘s approval, so it should come as less of a shock that it’s since been revoked.

It turns out that even though Palcohol claimed on their website they’d received government approval, it wasn’t exactly the full story. (Perhaps they were getting a little too high drunk on their own supply.) An e-mail exchange between the Associated Press and Tom Hogue, a representative for the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, reveals there was a discrepancy between how much powder was actually in the packets and what the label stated. The approval for Palcohol was issued in error.

No powdered alcohol?! Apologies to you psychos who wanted to snort alcohol in the first place. It looks like you’ll have to wait a little longer to get drunk and achieve your powdery dreams.
