so somebody just told me the other day that absinthe is now legal in the US. when did that happen! or did it? this is another one of those really odd posts that crops up every once in a while that doesn't really have to do with anything, oh well.

It's a sort of interesting legal area; check Wikipedia for the details. It was never illegal to possess, just illegal to sell. I haven't had any myself (which is funny, considering all the time I spent in Europe last year) but I wouldn't mind trying it at some point. My Mom has always wanted to try some, actually.

Absinthe was never dangerous, by the way- the thujone in it was never and is never at a high enough rate to cause any sort of side effects.
