Last call for Jungle Juice

Fans of grain alcohol should start stocking up.

Gov. Martin O’Malley signed into law on Monday a bill banning the sale of alcoholic beverages with an alcohol content of 95 percent or more (190 proof).

The law will go into effect on July 1, making the sale of any booze that violates the limit a misdemeanor carrying a fine of up to $1,000.

Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Virginia have already banned the sale of high-proof liquor.

High-proof alcohol, such as Everclear, is popular among college students and often used as a key ingredient in the high-potency fruit punch called Jungle Juice.
