Powdered alcohol poses a serious public health threat, especially to youth.
Almost 40 states have banned powdered alcohol.
Texas should be next.
CONCEALABLE. Backpacks, purses, and other small bags
can hide hundreds of packets.
EASILY MISUSED. Sprinkling it on food, snorting it, adding it to alcoholic beverages, or using multiple packets in one drink can lead quickly to overconsumption and risk for alcohol poisoning.
APPEALING TO YOUTH. Packaging and flavors are highly attractive to young people.
