[IFLS] Powdered Alcohol Coming To The US - Page 3

post #21 of 121
I don't know about this, you cant dry alcohol.. so its something else that decays into ethanol or its something that has the same effects as..

this is the equivalent of bathsalts to cocaine and spice to marijuana

i drink one beer quite often, i drink A beer with dinner or such just for the taste.

To take precautions against this action, we've added volume to the powder so it would take more than a half of a cup of powder to get the equivalent of one drink up your nose. You would feel a lot of pain for very little gain. Just use it the right way.

We have been in touch with the TTB and there seemed to be a discrepancy on our fill level, how much powder is in the bag. There was a mutual agreement for us to surrender the labels.

This doesn't mean that Palcohol isn't approved. It just means that these labels aren't approved. We will re-submit labels. We don't have an expected approval date as label approval can vary widely.

I'm no expert but alcohol only catches fire when it's at a high percentage.

If it's condensed in to a powder, you would think the content would be high. Then again, they wouldn't make a simple drink powder dangerous...or would they?

I think it would do better if it was more like those small pouches you pour into you'r water bottle to make it flavored. But make it straight alcohol instead, so you can mix it with anything with no particular liquor flavor.

Also regular strength beer ~5% has so much water in it that it will hydrate you to some extent, not anywhere near as much as regular old water but it won't dehydrate you.

Even one beer dehydrate you - you will urinate more water than what you get from the beer (dehydratation definition).

Alcohol is a SOLUTION, this powder has to be mixed with water. You smoke it, you burn it. You snort it you will cough.

And for the people that don't like the taste of liquor maybe they can just put it in a capsule and swallow it in pill form now tongue.gif I wonder how many people will die from this crap the liquid alcohol kills enough people already as it is.

Unfortunately, it's not that simple. You'll hang on to only about half or a third of the extra water you drink. Most of it will go out in your urine, and you'll still end up dehydrated at the end of a night of drinking."

If you want the biological sequence, here you go.
