Colorado lawmakers will consider whether to ban powdered alcohol before the product arrives in stores. Alaska, Delaware, Louisiana, South Carolina and Vermont have already banned the product, which is pending approval from federal regulators. A bill to join those states will be considered in a Colorado House committee. The product called “Palcohol” is an ounce of rum or vodka in powdered form, which is mixed with water. Those who oppose the product worry it will make it easier to sneak alcohol into schools and public events. But the makers of Palcohol say the goal is convenience and they tout potential uses on flights, after long hikes, and as an antiseptic on remote locations.
