Bag checks will never be the same. See http://www.palcohol.com/


is Powdered Alcohol
Safer than liquid alcohol


The TTB approved Palcohol on March 10, 2015 and It is now legal to be sold in the United States. We will be working on getting the production facility
up and running. It will take a while but hopefully it will be available this summer.

First off, I’m happy to report that Gov. Ducey of AZ just vetoed the bill to ban powdered alcohol. I have found that once legislators took the time to learn the truth about Palcohol vs. the untruths presented by critics who know nothing about the product, they recognize that banning Palcohol is not the answer.

So it concerns me that there is a proposed ban of powdered alcohol in other states and on the federal level denying millions of responsible adults and hundreds of businesses a chance to use this legal, safe and revolutionary new product that has applications in medicine, energy, hospitality, the military, manufacturing, etc. as well as reducing the carbon footprint by being so much lighter to ship than liquid alcohol.

Banning Palcohol is a bad decision for several reasons:


I. The legislators are limiting our freedom of choice

Even though all of these individuals and businesses want Palcohol, the legislators are telling them they can’t have a legal product, basically saying they know what’s better than the people themselves. Whether you are conservative or liberal, no one wants a nanny government telling its citizens what they can and cannot drink. The legislature is there to protect the citizen’s right to choose and support innovative business ideas, not to impose your values on them.


II. Why aren’t critics calling for a ban on liquid alcohol?

Let’s get one thing clear...banning powdered alcohol is not about public safety. If it really was about public safety, then why isn’t a move made to ban liquid alcohol also…..a product abused by millions of people causing the death of tens of thousands of people each year. Liquid alcohol is a bigger threat to public health than Palcohol will ever be.

Liquid alcohol is easier to conceal, easier to spike drinks and easier to use to binge drink. It's much less expensive and allows someone to get drunk faster, both which appeal to the underage drinker.

Medical Applications

Click above for a video done by Wired.com about powdered alcohol. Although the powdered alcohol made in the video is not equal to what Palcohol is, it does show how the concerns about its misuse is overblown.

Palcohol will be made in two different formulations, a Beverage Formulation (ingestible) and an Industrial Formulation (non-ingestible).

Beverage Formulation: In its beverage formulation, Palcohol is for the legitimate and responsible enjoyment by lawful consumers and has several applications:

Outdoor Activity Applications: Palcohol is a boon to outdoors enthusiasts such as campers, hikers and others who wanted to enjoy adult beverages responsibly without having the undue burden of carrying heavy bottles of liquid.

Travel Applications: Similarly, adult travelers journeying to destinations far from home could conveniently and lawfully carry their favorite cocktail in powder format. Moderate quantities of flavored Palcohol products carried in resealable pouches are a fraction of the weight and bulk associated with traditional liquor packaging.

Hospitality Applications: Because powdered alcohol is so light, airlines can reduce the weight on an airplane by serving powdered vs. liquid alcohol and save millions on fuel costs. An ice cream manufacturer wants to add Palcohol to their ice cream to make an "adult" version. A hotel in Hawaii is interested in powdered alcohol because it would save them so much on shipping from the mainland. That savings in shipping costs would be attractive to many resorts who rely on imported alcohol.


Industrial Formulation (non-ingestible): The industrial formulation, different from the consumer formulation, has many possible positive uses in industry. People have contacted us with several in mind. Of course, until Palcohol gets government approval, we can not know exactly what the applications will be. Examples include:

Medical Applications: We've had medical personnel contact us about using Palcohol as an antiseptic, especially in remote locations where weight and bulk make it difficult to transport supplies.

Manufacturing Applications: Several companies have contacted us about using powdered alcohol in their business. A livestock supplement company wants to use it. A Swedish and a Canadian inquired about using it in their windshield wiper fluid. Because Palcohol is such a new and revolutionary product, there will probably many more uses discovered.

Energy Applications: There has been a great interest in using powdered alcohol as a fuel source, from a lightweight alternative to powering a camping stove to an emergency fuel pouch for a vehicle. There is talk of multiple military applications from transport fuel to fuel in a soldier’s backpack.

No, this isn’t about powdered alcohol being a public safety threat. It’s about the liquor companies protecting their market share and profits. It's about critics who don’t even know about Palcohol spreading untruths about the product to gain support for a ban.Even though liquid alcohol is a proven public health problem, we don’t ban it….and we shouldn’t ban powdered alcohol. We’ve learned that Prohibition doesn’t work. We can't legislate behavior.

Yes it is NOT an Onion article.
Victoria is in the process of banning it here and is suggesting other States and the Feds do the same
In the interest of anarchy and civil disobedience please see the following
