Can you ship alchohol? Can one of your local party stores order you one?

I have a bottle of that stuff in my freezer. I have not touched it since college.

Why do you want it so bad?

I guess it is illegal to sell that high of a proof in CA but from what I gather I can have it shipped to me. I want a bottle as a gift for someone who has been asking for it for years.

The highest proof I can get at the store is 151, I guess I can go down and ask my local guy.

On more than one occasion I have bought liquor locally and shipped it to another state. They key is to secure it in a plastic bag, wrap with bubble wrap, and not tell the shipper what you are shipping.

It's not that uncommon for states to ban grain alcohol. honestly i've never seen anything good come out of drinking it. I never liked having it at the parties we threw.

Hunch punch is the #1 reason why college kids have alcohol poisoning..

And here I thought it was lack of self-control.

Nice to know the student isn't to blame.

The problem is that most of the its (young) girls that drink it since most haven't acquired a taste for beer. most of them barely know their drinking limits as it is.. and thats normally with vodka, which is 80-100 proof. You suddenly double that on them, and they get plastered. which sounds "cool" when you are a 19 year old dude and can only get laid if the girl is passing out... but its pretty dangerous stuff.

leave ca. no one will ship you a bottle there. sucks to be you. 40 bucks is pretty close to what it costs. It is manufactured at about a dollar a bottle.

If they sold it at 5 dollars a bottle there would be a lot more alcohol related deaths.
