States banning powdered alcohol before it’s even being sold

Powdered Alcohol Isn’t Even Being Sold, And It’s Banned In 21 States

Powdered alcohol, if you haven’t already heard, is a very real thing. Unfortunately, the innovative product may have some trouble selling given it's been banned in 21 states including, most recently, New York.

Although the powdered alcohol bans began back in 2014, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) just banned the product Friday. He said in a statement that powdered alcohol can easily lead to dangerous levels of intoxication if it is ingested in its powdered form, or mixed incorrectly. "This dangerous product is a public health disaster waiting to happen,” Cuomo added. 

The governor's office is proud of this new legislation, confident it will "keep powdered alcohol off the shelves and out of the wrong hands.” But Mark Phillips, the creator of "Palcohol," disagrees. Phillips is working hard to reverse these bans as he believes his product is actually safer to consume than normal liquid alcohol.

Never saw this one coming, but hell, if they sell things like powdered beef liver,
why not powdered alcohol too? Imagine a kid getting a hold of this stuff though,
and thinking its some kind of fruit drink? Or even adding it to fruit drink. Could
be disastrous!

I live in New York and believe that Andrew Cuomo may have just done the right
thing. A little tough love for alcoholics everywhere; though not intended directly
towards them!

This is nothing really new. They also have powdered caffeine. To my knowledge, its not banned. Its marketed as "create your own energy drink".
