Try Legal Weed

No, not that. We’re talking Weed Beer. I’m talking about a beer made in the city of Weed, California. A local brewer there has named his beer after the small town. The Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms however, wasn’t too pleased with their slogan on their bottle cap, “Try Legal Weed”.

Bureau spokesman Art Resnick said Monday that the bottle caps tell consumers to support an illegal drug

Since it literally says “legal weed” on it, I’m not sure how they think it refers to illegal weed. The owner of the brew counters with the fact that Budweiser is known as “bud”

“They sell Bud — we sell Weed.”

Just add this to another casualty in this ridiculous war on drugs.

    It disgusts me that the federal government would try to micro-manage a small business at this level. Consumers can decide whether or not they think the slogan is appropriate - not the government. I was so angry about this that I called the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau: 202-927-8210 to complain.

    The Government needs to worry about important issues in this country and not worry about BS like weed beer. I don’t understand this and never will
