FUN FACT: Prohibition in the United States started in 1920. Keep in mind that Franklin Roosevelt was a fan of absinthe. After 13 ridiculously sad years, prohibition ended on the same year that Roosevelt became president in 1933. I wonder why ;) After the ratification of the 21st amendment, alcohols and liqueurs became legal. Sadly, absinthe remained illegal for the next 74 years. In 2007, absinthe became legal again (only those that have less than 10ppm of thujone). And yes, the real absinthe is legal. Check out this article for more information on "real absinthe".

A famous quote by Oscar Wilde, "After the first glass of absinthe you see things as you wish they were. After the second you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world".
