It's pretty well figured out that it doesn't cause hallucinogenic effects, and even if it did, stateside absinthe laws require it to be thujone free (the supposed chemical that causes mind altering effects). However, tell that to some 20something at the bar that wants to order a round of absinthe for his buddies. Regardless of the facts, people will continue to believe what they want and buy based on the response it brings. People will still buy absinthe because it sounds cool, mysterious, and illicit. "Dude! I did a shot of absinthe!"
