    I saw an interview with the guy who developed it - he said that was the reason he did.

    I voted buy out of curiosity. Like most other products, whether I continue to buy would depend on whether I like it. The opposition, beyond that to regular alcohol, seems to be underage availability and that people might snort it or imbibe it without reconstituting. If kids want alcohol, they'll get it no matter what. But regulating and taxing Palcohol like alcohol might exert some control and would increase revenue. Since it's undiluted, imbibing without reconstituting might intensify the effect but a packet still is equivalent to only about one drink. As for snorting, the developer said that would be like snorting liquid alcohol - it would BURN!

    Some states are set to be against sale of this product but the question is:


    Once Palcohol is in the stores, will you buy it and try it? Is this a good idea or bad idea in general? Take the poll.
    It's a bad idea, too easy for kids to smuggle around.

    Eh, then it'd taste just like vodka though.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    Not if you require this on every package.

    But that's about it and a very limited market there. Folks who backpack with alcohol don't carry the bottle now. They go with a lighter flask.

    Considering the additives and the fact it takes a while to prepare, you're better off with the real thing. It's a pet rock idea.

    Btw, weed is lighter than both and who wants to be hung over on a backpacking trip?

    Nah, alcohol dehydrates you - the more you drank, the less urine you'd have to mix.

    All they gotta do is open the package and transfer the powder. Very bad idea in my opinion.

    The water had to go somewhere, so where do you think it goes?

    Yeah, it was a joke - logic not required.
