another one?

Tricky but neither are actually illegal in most of the world

Absinthe is actually not illegal in the US. It is only illegal to import into the country.

It's legality to sell within the US is actually not directly tied to absinthe, but rather on the amount of thujone it possesses. Meet the requirement[1] of less than 10mg per kg and you get to sell absinthe in the US: http://www.drinklucid.com/

[1] which is actually a silly requirement as sage and other legal spices contain more thujone than you'll ever find in absinthe...
