Powdered alcohol is now a thing

Forget trying to sneak a hip flask into a venue, spiking your drink could soon be as simple as adding powder (if you're in the US that is).

Researchers have invented powdered alcohol, which can even be sprinkled on food or snorted, according to the Palcohol website:

"Let’s talk about the elephant in the room… snorting Palcohol. Yes, you can snort it. And you’ll get drunk almost instantly because the alcohol will be absorbed so quickly in your nose. Good idea? No. It will mess you up. Use Palcohol responsibly."

It sounds like a pretty reckless idea, but the US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau has now approved the product and it's expected to hit liquor stores within months.

Thanks science...we think.
