I think I have seen Vermouth for sale, here in CA sometime back, which I
seem to remember that it contains some Thujone in it, although I dunno if
the Vermouth sold in the US is a different version from the one sold
back in Europe.

In any case I wouldn't risk it with the Airport people right now, I have
had plenty of flying time in the past couple of years and even with a
green card I do not feel like pushing my luck with the customs/security
people. Which means I do not get to bring as many goodies as I used from
the ol' world *sigh*
