09/07/2004: This brings a new meaning....
to the term "polydrug abuse." We see that some daring entrepreneur in the Czech Republic has come up with "Cannabis Brand Hemp Vodka". Yes, you read that correctly, vodka distilled from hemp seeds.
The source article further tells us that the Russian Federal Service for Drug Control has instigated a prosecution of a service station owned by the Russian oil company Yukos for "promoting drug culture" by selling the vodka, saying that the label (and especially the label inscription: "Hemp Vodka ó Alcoholic drink prepared using hemp seeds. Enjoying this wonderful drink, donít forget about its amazing strength!") advertised cannabis.
Wonder how the beverage would be handled here?
