I believe it's only legal with the name absinthe... I don't think the actual ingredients are able to be the same.

The kind in the U.S. isn't the same. It doesn't have the right amount of thujone. You an legally import the stronger brews. But i hear you can't get ones with high thujone in the US. The thujone is what causes madness / hallucinations and anything else interesting.

I had some imported shit about a year ago from France. Tasted like licorice and I just got really wasted. It also turned very cloudy when cold water was added.

most people describe absinthe with thujone as being drunk with a clear head.

you know what i did in english class? I came to class stoned out of my mind every day, i chugged vodka in the back of class, i put dead fish in the ceiling tiles. i put a gallon of old milk and orange juice in the file cabinet before winter vacation. i brought snakes in a tied up sweater and let them loose during class. i didnt go to school to learn, i went because i had to. i didnt care, and i didn't fucking listen to that stupid bitch. and i still don't fucking care. i tore the pages out of her books and burned them, and threw away all the books in the class, two books per day.  :twobooks:

To further explain what i was saying:

Quote:

Although it is banned in some Western countries, absinthe isn't controlled as a drug but as a food. As with many other things considered poisonous, you aren't allowed to commercially make food or drink containing more than trace amounts of thujone. However, simple possession of thujone-containing ethanol solutions will probably not get you into legal problems. Presumably you would be legally liable for any possible damages if you gave absinthe to others to drink. Artemisia species are completely legal and are attractive perennial ornamental plants.

In the United States of America, absinthe was originally banned by Food Inspection Decision 147 in 1912. Now, thujone is banned as a food additive according to Section 801A of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of August, 1972. Wormwood was included on a list of unsafe herbs which the FDA released in 1975.

Not sure what brand is good or where to order from. You can buy a kit to make your own, not sure which are good either.

yeah, i remember drinking absinthe, having a perfectly coherent conversation for a couple of hours. really going to town on the absinthe, too. i felt fine. then i got up to piss and could barely walk.

whether related or not, the next morning was funny as hell. some neighbors of my friend came over to talk about something. i was passed out on the living room floor and due to their noise started half mumbling half screaming that i was going to kill god with an elephant gun. they asked me who and i pointed at the ceiling and said "that smarmy motherfucker in the sky"

it was fun

It's easy enough to order all the herbs for Absinthe online and steep em in a bottle of Alcool.

I found out there is a limit to the thujone/wormwood levels in absinthe even in europe and also found the brands with the highest levels thanks for your help guys.

I just want to see why van Gogh loved it so much.
