The views expressed are those of the author(s) and are not necessarily those of Scientific American.
A few days ago, the New York Times ran a story about the return of absinthe, the infamous liquor that is said to have caused Van Gogh to hallucinate. Their story referenced an article on the drink from the June 1989 issue of Scientific American. So we dug it up from our archives and are making it available here for your perusal. Cheers!
