(productos) intoxicantes


Explanation:
Estimada Maria:
En este caso pienso que es "intoxicantes" pues se refiere a los efectos que producen.

Suerte y saludos de Oso :^)


"...el alcohol es un ingrediente psicoactivo del vino, la cerveza, los licores destilados y muchas
otras bebidas, es un líquido incoloro e inflamable con efectos intoxicantes..."
