Ban Powdered Alcohol
I am concerned about the effect that powdered alcohol will have in my community.Currently, alcohol is the leading drug problem among youth and adults. Research supports that when alcohol access increases the severity of problems also increase. I am concerned thatpowdered alcohol'sportability will make it easy to hide in book bags, school lockers, transport to school and community events. I am concerned that if powdered alcohol reaches the market there is a great potential for an increased number of serious injuries, industrial accidents, motor vehicle accidents and alcohol poisoningin youth and adults. I am concerned that youth will begin snorting powdered alcohol because they are already snorting pixie sticks and other controlled substances. I am concerned that the availability of powdered alcohol will lead to an increase in alcohol-related injuries and deaths. I am urging you to support a ban on powdered alcohol. Thank you for your consideration.
