BERLIN, GERMANY - MARCH 15: Bottles of absinthe sit next to a prepared glass of the drink at the Absinth Depot shop on March 15, 2013 in Berlin, Germany. The highly alcoholic drink absinthe was banned in much of Europe during World War I, and only in recent years became once again legal, finding its way back into bars and shops. Meanwhile the European Parliament is divided on its vote on the European Commission's attempt to standardize the definition of the drink by deciding if and how much of the two substances anethole and the chemical thujone, a toxin extracted from wormwood, which has given the drink its reputation for producing mind-altering effects, must be contained within it to officially classify versions of the 'green fairy,' as it is also known, with the absinthe name.
