    In that the liquor industry spends million on advertising their Partnership for a Drug Free America - of course they would toss Freedom of Speech in the bonfire.

    Meanwhile, on eBay, I'll bet the bottles w/caps will command a good price. Stock up!

    Wow. That is all I have to say. Of course, alcohol is not a drug, we wouldn't want people to think that. And then they top it off with the lame excuse that such a play on words could mislead beer drinkers about the true nature of alcohol. As if beer drinkers don't understand the effects of alcohol. I don't know whether to laugh or scream.

    I think this is a bigger insult to consumers than Obama's "bitter and clinging to religion and guns" comment. The TTB (what's wrong with ATF anymore?) is claiming that consumers would be stupid enough to think an alcoholic beverage would have cannabis like effects? Even I'm a cynic but I doubt people would be dumb enough to be mislead by a label into thinking they could expect to get high off of a beer.

    There is a recipe out there for brewing brew using marijuana instead of hops. Voila! Cannabis Ale. Friend of Bongo tried this and it worked. Two bottle would give one a buzz. But it didn't taste very good. Mission aborted after the first run.

    Bet the ATF and/or TTB would have had him drawn & quartered for that.

    I doubt they seriously believe that line of reasoning. The answer lies in a quote found within the article:

    Hmmm.... sound pretty useless to you?

    Yeah, does to me too. Looks like someone is trying to protect their useless job.
