Powdered Alcohol Hitting Stores Near You Soon

A new product that’s somehow been approved by US regulators makes booze as discreet as a packet of sugar. It’s called Palcohol, and it transforms a shot of vodka or rum into a pocketable pouch of powder. Tear it open, add some water, mix, and you’ve got hard liquor. Considering the age group that Palcohol is going to appeal to, however, the sweet, pre-mixed powders are probably going to be far more popular. To start off, the company plans to make margarita, mojito, cosmopolitan, and lemon drop flavors.

After this powdered booze it will be a mess to control booze in the places where it is prohibited, Palcohol offers a few suggestions on its website (cached) ranging from sneaking booze into places like movie theaters and college sporting events (where alcohol is banned) to sprinkling it directly onto food so teens don’t even have to stomach the bitter alcohol flavor. Just in case you don’t get the idea, the product’s motto is “Take your Pal wherever you go!” The original site, which has now been replaced with a more responsible, updated version, even offered this gem:

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room… snorting Palcohol. Yes, you can snort it. And you’ll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose. Good idea? No. It will mess you up. Use Palcohol responsibly.

Site also states that the powder is cut with enough filler to make snorting inefficient. Nevertheless, you may soon be able to give it a try for yourself. According to government documents dug up by beverage industry blog Bevlog, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) has approved the powdered alcohol.

Palcohol’s founder says that he plans the product to hit liquor store shelves this fall.

Apparently it has now been rejected. . . waiting for resubmission : http://money.cnn.com/2014/04/21/news/companies/powdered-alcohol/index.html

Dutch Parliament Bans Glyphosate Herbicides (Roundup) for Non-Commercial Use

From the end of 2015 onward the sale of Glyphosate -based herbicides to private persons, including the World’s number one herbicide ‘Roundup’, will be prohibited in the Netherlands over health fears. That is fantastic 🙂

Glyphosate is an ingredient of Roundup, which is sold to private persons as a weed control product. The Dutch Lower House gave consent to a motion by Dutch Member of Parliament Esther Ouwehand, which prohibits the sale of glyphosate to private individuals.

Now here is where I have a problem with this silly stupid retarded government who condone killing/poisoning  of their own people (like all governments) . . . you ban it for home use but allow it to be sprayed on food? Really?? Are you insane? Stupid? Or simply ok with the money you pocket in Tax from Monsanto? Or all of the above, me thinks. You go so far to realise  how deadly that stuff is and then do not go all the way. Cowards.

Glyphosate is increasingly associated with health problems such as infertility, birth defects, damage to the nervous system, Parkinson’s disease and several forms of cancer. In addition to health risks for humans, the usage of chemical pesticides can also lead to loss of biodiversity and difficulties with purifying drinking water.
