I did some research on it tonight at http://www.absinthebuyersguide.com/
They have a lot of info there.
ya, there was a great thin on the history channel about distilling and absinthe came up and they were saying that there is nothing about it that should give you the crazy stuff, i think it was that old absinthe was made in lead pipes and basically gave you lead poisoning but i cant remember that part for sure
