artesmia illegal to grow?

Response to Moroccan Tea?


I have an acre that has been taken over by artesmia absinthe type. I had a very tough time getting it hacked down last fall( about 4 ft. high and dense). I have no idea how it started in my fields.

If I was in it long my mind got confused and disoriented.It is very fragrant and has a strong odor. Later when I was told it was the type they use to make absinthe the drink.

I wondered if there was someone I could sell all those plants to.It has been very costly trying to keep it hacked down. You say it is illegal to sell this plant in the U.S.? How do you know that? Will I get fined or something because it is growing here and I am having a VERY tough time getting it out of my horses fields. Thanks for any responses and happy new year !
