HB29 passed the House and was well received in the Senate Committee. The bill would have made powdered alcohol legislated just like any alcoholic product. However, it did not pass for a good reason, which is odd to admit. The Senate said they did not want to pass the bill because it did not go far enough, and wants to pass a stronger ban next year. They were genuine about their sentiment, and believe the support next year will be stronger for a flat out ban, at least via the internet, and then access only in retail for those 21 and older.
