David... good try! But you don't really think anybody believes you, don't you?
To my knowledge, there are only two absinthes in existence that contain anywhere near pre-ban levels of thujone (100+ mg): King of Spirits Gold and Century Absinthe. Neither of the two, nor any other genuine absinthe, will make it to the States anytime soon. For the real deal, you have to travel to Europe or have it shipped over. Yes, possession and importation for personal use is legal. You can see King of Spirits Gold here: www.originalabsinthe.com/absinthe-king-gold-p-56.html
