What Ever Happened To Palcohol?

A few months ago, the U.S. news media was all abuzz about a new product called 'Palcohol', which is alcohol in a powdered form. I for one thought that idea of having alcohol in a form that was easy to mix with any type of beverage was a neat idea. Since that time - at least one state, New York, has decided to ban the future sale of Palcohol. It appears that lawmakers there are afraid it might find it's way into the hands of little children and lead to their deaths. While I agree that Palcohol should not be exposed to children, there are already so many dangerous things in every house in America that can harm children. What are we going to do, ban them all? There are always going to be Americans who choose to drink alcohol and the last time the government tried to keep folks from drinking, we all know how that turned out during prohibition. Hopefully, some compromise will be found so Palcohol can be sold to the American public.
