I was at the liquor store today and saw it here in holland. Two different types. One was 55% alcohol and the other 70%!! It was 25 euros.I saw it for sale at Lee's Liquor in Las Vegas. There were several different brands ranging from 50.00 per bottle to 70.00 (yikes). But, yes it is lega now. I usually just buy Absinte, not real but you still get the taste. I really wanted to buy the real stuff, but I just couldn't bring myself to pay the 70.00!
You can find the real stuff with >100mg thujone in Europe called Century Absinthe.Wormwood is a stimulating tonic, resemling chamomile in it's effects, but stronger and more disagreeable.In small doses, it operates like the simple bitters: in larger excites the pulse, increases the heat of skin and is said to have exhibited narcotic effect.

if it is sold in stores it must have tested "thujone free" which means <9ppm thujone, so trace elements exist I suppose.
