Great paper. Thanks for sharing. The idiots who hype up the thujone in their marketing are only damaging and threatening the legality of the drink! The morons in congress will pass anything if there is enough misinformation, and if big liquor DOESN'T get into absinth, they could potentially use this bad marketing as part of a "make it illegal again" campaign. These irresponsible vendors need to be stopped.
