    Absinthe is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and, until recently, was completely banned in the U.S. and most of Europe. The reason for this is that absinthe contains thujone, a toxic chemical found in several edible plants including tarragon, sage, and wormwood.

    I think it's illegal in the U.S., isn't it?

    Edit: Never mind

    The first time i ever heard about it was in a Johnny Depp movie called From Hell.
    It was about a detective in Victorian England investigating the Jack the Ripper murders.

    It's sold in liqueur stores now however I think in the United States it's not like the European stuff.

    I used to drink moonshine at a friends/neighbors house when i was a teenager/high school in the early morning as a wake up call, maybe 10 times total. When i went to Croatia in 2006 they were selling shots of moonshine for like one US dollar, might of been less than that can't remember exactly :lmao:. Wishing now i had ordered some Absinthe just to try it out back then.

    That's what I've always heard. Now that I think about it, I think one of my English teachers in high school told us about it. Not that he'd ever tried it, just explained what it was. I think it was mentioned in a story we were reading.

    Have someone tie you up and give you a few shots.

    I thought that Absinthe and green dragon were the same thing. Maybe i got them mixed up with each other.
