Recently approved by the US Alcohol &Tobacco Tax &Trade Bureau, Palcohol is a new ground-breaking powdered type of alcohol. The end user can carry with him or her, a small sachet of Palcohol about just like a sachet of sugar or any sugar substitute. Theoretically, the Palcohol carrier or user may be able to bring it to those places where the traditional forms of alcohol may be prohibited. Users can probably bring it into restaurants, offices, stadiums and other such venues or places. As the name tag ‘pal’ implies, this now means that the user can carry alcohol in a powdered form as though it were an extremely close pal or friend.
The usage of Palcohol does not come with any complicated instructions. It works just like a pack of powdered sugar or any similar product, except that it needs to be mixed with approximately 5 ounces of clean water. On the other hand, the user may add it to the contents 5 ounces of orange juice or Coca-Cola or any other preferred liquid choice. When Palcohol is used per instructions, one sachet or packet has the same alcohol amount in it as a single mixed drink. The producer company is intending to release 2 initial plain flavors of alcohol: rum and vodka. The company will thereafter release 4 mixed drinks: lemon drop, mojita, powderita and cosmopolitan.
Palcohol is providing an innovative answer to the inconveniences and embarrassments that are typically linked with alcohol. The consumers may now very discreetly be able to carry their alcohol in the form of Palcohol and have their drinks without anybody knowing or being any wiser. This creates an interesting situation when it comes to drinking and driving. Having an open container of alcohol in a vehicle is against the law, but having an unopened case of beer is not. Does the possession of the powder cause any legal issues? According to one DUI Defense attorney in Baltimore, the possession is not against the law, it is when the substances are mixed and ingested that the offense of drinking and driving comes into play. The attorney stated that many Towson DUI lawyers were preparing for this new potential offense, and it raised a few interesting questions within the group.
Palcohol is expected to have a number of the same regulations and rules as the regular alcohol. Persons who have not attained legal age will not be permitted to buy the product. Those retail outlets that will choose to stock and sell the variants of Palcohol will be obligated to have the requisite licenses to do so. In addition, the same legal set of rules will be applied to drunk drivers, underage alcohol drinkers and the like. The single thing that will actually change is the alcohol bottle, which may begin to vanish when Palcohol hits the open market.
Though Palcohol has been US Alcohol &Tobacco Tax &Trade Bureau approved, the producing company is still in the business of tying up the loose ends. This innovative product is anticipated to hit the US market sometime during the fall. The company has said that it will avail the product online and in various physical locations. Up to now, it is not yet very clear if Palcohol will be accessible in convenience stores and restaurants, or if this will be limited to the customary liquor stores and similar outlets.
The website that is marketing this product is encouraging people to make use of the product appropriately and legally as it basically an alcoholic product especially when it comes to matters of Driving Under the Influence. The same laws will be applied to drunk drivers who face DUI charges.
