    AM I THE LAST PERSON IN THE WORLD TO FIND THIS OUT?

    I just heard this on the radio 5 mins ago and was like.... "what THE FUCK did I just hear"? I thought I was hallucinating. Then I immediately go to Google and find this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alcohol_powder ?!!! ???? WHAT THE FUCK. Powder? Alcohol?

    I've drank alcohol 1 time in the last 6-7 years but I'm hunting this shit down tomorrow and getting sauced.

    Has anyone ever tried it before?

    How many people were / were not aware of this?

    I just heard Maryland is trying to ban it at the fear it will be abused and "snorted" by minors. However, the wiki says its 60% alcohol by weight. And when you mix it with water the alcohol is released. So if you snort this my chemistry skills tell me your nose will fall off.

    I KNOW someone on here has tried snorting this shit. Or plugged it up their butthole. Please tell the forum what it feels like I have to know right now. :)

    Yep - it's been around for a while.

    I must admit I thought it was some sort of joke when I first heard about it too.

    Lmao, I laughed too hard at that hahaha.

    I've heard about this a little while ago.
    Doesn't concern me at all, since I'm not even legal to drink yet.

    I remember seeing this stuff when I was a kid at school. It was a paste and someone said it was Ethanol (drinking alcohol), I didn't believe them until they lit it on fire.

    I don't understand why this is such a big deal? Its just alcohol, its pretty shit in the liquid form an it would be even worse in a powder.

    lmao that was funny but I don't really see the use of powered alcohol besides it maybe being cheaper?

    Just another marketing fad I guess lol

    It's pretty common in my country. Many people use it when they go camping to limit the danger of bursting glass bottles.

    I never heard of it either. It's bit strange that a gangsta like you didn't know of it :D

    As per my chemistry knowledge, alcohol has a melting point of -114 degree C. So no, you can't have alcohol in solid form, not in room temperature to say the least. As per the wiki article you provided, alcohol is absorbed in cyclodextrin (some sugar like compound as per wiki) to make the powder. So it is not pure. I would not even dare to touch it.. Not sure about others. Better stay away from that shit. :p

    Is it available in bottles only at the minute or can you get it on draft? Either way it sounds antisocial to me but for the hardened alcoholics it might be just the thing.

    I've heard people mention it but I thought it's not exactly ethanol per se, but something more like phenibut (awesome stuff btw).

    Apparently not, lol. I can see many ways you can kill yourself with that, so I guess someone is seriously pushing natural selection back into the world. Can't say I'm too opposed to it :D

    Ditto. Nearly regretted as much as drinking a teaspoon of peppermint essence.

    Its actually been around for some time. Its just not main stream. People are always reinventing the drug wheel to get high. Look at all the synthetic drugs people are coming up with.
