lucid's marketing hypocritical

Agree with Marco on this one.

Here is something from the Reason Magazine ( "Free minds and free markets" ). Just published Nov 12, 2007 (www.reason.com):

"Even as (they) emphasize Lucid's negligible thujone content, the drink's manufacturer tries to capitalize on absinthe's reputation as a forbidden potion with the slogan, "Prohibition is finally over!"

So there you have it. All hype, no substance. No (real) absinthe in America anytime soon guys. Shame on the FDA, and no, thanks, Ted - I don't care for your spiel. I get mine sent over from Europe.

Absinthe: The symbol of 'la vie boheme' for over a hundred years. More than a century on, the drink still retains its original appeal.
