Powdered alcohol? Why some want Texas to ban it before it hits store shelves

Jacinto Ramos Jr. is worried.

He fears that if Texas students get their hands on powdered alcohol they could die.

“This is a public health disaster waiting to happen because it could push blood alcohol content quickly to dangerous levels, which can lead to car crashes if behind the wheel of a car; alcohol poisoning; and even death,” Ramos, a Fort Worth school board trustee, recently wrote in a column about the topic.

He is voicing his concerns as Texas lawmakers consider an outright ban on the product. It is not sold in Texas.

On Tuesday, the House Licensing and Administrative Procedures Committee is set to consider House Bill 1610, by state Rep. Trent Ashby, R-Lufkin, which would ban powdered alcohol, also known as palcohol, in Texas as of Sept. 1.

3. I think one of the big benefits

would be in packaging and shipping. Imagine a semi filled with 1/2 gallon bottles of vodka in glass or plastic bottles condensed down to 4 cases of powdered mix in a pouch. The impact on the environment would be beneficial. That said, Ramos has an excellent point. Even adults would abuse this in such a way that it could create a human health problem. I remember my Mom telling me that one of her nephews who was an alcoholic, drank her vanilla extract because she removed all the booze from the house when he came to visit.

5. It's been around for a few years.

I've read about some other states that have banned it.
