Mar 25th 2008 8:12PM Hutch, you don't have a clue what you are talking about. Arnold's non-scientific "guesstimate" was debunked a decade ago. Modern absinthe -- and yes, the US-legal versions -- contain the same amount of thujone as the originals. This makes sense, since most of them follow the exact same recipes!
If you believe in the "thujone effect" you might want to ask yourself why you don't see flying turkey fairies after you eat Thanksgiving dinner -- sage in stuffing has high amounts of thujone and, not suprisingly, has never been regulated by the FDA as psychoactive.
You've been fooled by online marketing bullshite....wanna smoke a banana peel, sucker?
