What is Palcohol?

Criminal Defense Lawyer-Columbus

Powered alcohol is now legal in Colorado, but you’ll still need a Columbus criminal defense lawyer if you’re caught with it in Ohio.

The true skiers know what a fresh dump of snow means—untracked skiing in the champagne powder.  And Colorado is prime for skiing the powder.

But that’s not the only powder found in Colorado. Not talking about cocaine (that’s old hat). Now you can drink your powder in the morning, catch a cool buzz, then ski the powder in the afternoon.  Or, better yet, smuggle your powder onto the lift with you.

That’s right, drink your powder. The feds have now approved powdered alcohol. According to the federal spokesman, Tom Hogue, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau approved four varieties of Palcohol (powdered booze). The individual states are free to do what that they want, but it’s OK with the feds.

Colorado is on board, but other states aren’t so excited about it. Alaska, Delaware, Louisiana, South Carolina and Vermont have already banned it. And Ohio reps are introducing laws to ban it here.

Can’t help but think how cool it would be to pack powdered booze on the go. Just add water, and you’re on your way to a great ball game, concert, or anywhere else it costs $8.00 a beer.

But all is not lost yet. We may end up seeing Palcohol on our shelves. Drink up.
