Senate Passes Griffo Bill To Ban Powdered Alcohol

The New York State Senate has passed legislation sponsored by Senator Joseph Griffo that would ban the sale of powdered alcohol.

In April, the FDA approved powdered alcohol or “Palcohol” but quickly reversed its decision, saying it had been made in error.

The bill passed in the Senate would ban powdered alcohol in New York should the FDA decide to change their decision again.

Griffo says powdered alcohol is unnecessary and has the potential for danger and abuse.

Alaska has already outlawed powdered alcohol and legislation to ban it was approved in South Carolina last week and in Vermont last month.
