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!
