The rip-roaring economy, peaceful state of the world, and general lack of serious crime at home or in neighboring countries has given the Federal Government a lot of time on its hands. The Los Angeles Times reports that recently they've come down on Weed Ales, a brewery up in Weed, California near Mt. Shasta. The brew's bottle caps sport the saying "Try Legal Weed", which rang more then a few alarm bells at the Government's crack anti-drug unit. Federal Spokesman A. Resnick told the Times that the Government: "considers it to be a drug reference, and find it to be false and misleading to the consumer in terms of what may or may not be the properties contained within that product". Weed Ales say that they only want to sell their "masterfully hand-crafted beers brewed with pure, fresh Mt. Shasta spring water" and have a little fun with their bottle caps. A decision on the matter is due on June 1st.
