What is Palcohol?

17 Jul

some tidbits for the near-the-horizon coming of Powdered ALCOHOL (Palcohol), via this month’s EM News:

 

concentrated powdered alcohol

>= 55% alcohol by weight, 10% by volume

palcohol

the idea:

mix with warm water, imbibe

the concerns:

hidden ingestion (e.g. slipping it into drinks, spiking food)

non-PO routes (e.g. snorting, IV)

 

deterrents (hopefully)

volume — packet says 200ml with water added, so would take a lot powder to spike/snort/shoot 1 shot of liquor’s worth

pain — snorting or IV injection seems caustic and painful

 

There you go.  Be on the lookout.
