JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Powdered alcohol would be regulated like other alcoholic beverages in Missouri under legislation passed by the state House.
House members voted 117-30 this past week to send the measure to the Senate. The bill would regulate a powder that can be added to water much like Kool-Aid to create an alcoholic drink.
Efforts to completely ban powdered alcohol have previously failed in the Legislature.
The measure also would allow workers ages 18 or older to unload alcohol from delivery trucks, as well as carry it to customers’ cars.
Powdered alcohol isn’t even available in the open market, but 25 states have already moved to ban it in some way, the Washington Post reports.
