Riverton Wyoming Makes Mouthwash And Hand Sanitizer Illegal Intoxicants
To be clear, this does not mean that you cannot buy, sell, or possess the stuff in Riverton Wyoming.
According to County 10 News, the mayor and city council unanimously approved an ordinance to classify mouthwash and hand sanitizers as “illegal intoxicants.”
The language of the ordnance makes it clear that these products are okay as long as they are used as intended.
Ward I councilman Kyle Larsen further clarified by saying, “My understanding is that this allows our police officers to properly police abusers of mouthwash, hand sanitizer, in the past you could be hooked on mouthwash, you’d be intoxicated, but you couldn’t be cited. All this really does is helps our police officers do what the citizens have elected us to do.”
Using these products for intoxication could result in 6 months of imprisonment and a fine of up to $750.
