    You sure it's real?
    I thought the hallucinogenic version was illegal here.
    I've had it in Europe and HOLY FUCK it's a ride!

    Wait you bought it at the store? Absente is illegal in the states, Especially with wormwood. How'd you manage that?

    Wormwood is perfectly legal in the US, it's the active ingredient thujone that is illegal. You're drinking the equivalent of decaff coffee.

    Well how do ya like that!


    Due to changes in the understanding of these regulations on the parts of both the agencies and absinthe producers, genuine absinthe is once again available legally in the US. Here's why: The law1 states that all foods and beverages containing any Artemisia species must be "thujone-free".
