Anyone have it?

The bottle cap simply states: "Try Legal Weed". It's a play on words that was meant to draw attention to the town in which the beer is made.
But the Bureau "censors" seemed to take issue with that bottle cap and declined to approve the registration of that slogan. Even the U.S. Treasury branch rejected it because drug references are banned on alcoholic beverages due to federal laws. Well somehow, things have suddenly changed.

I was just up in weed about 2 weeks ago and had the opportunity to try the Shastafarian Porter. very good. I just wish I could find it down in San Diego. Good for him. I can't believe people would put up a fuss about that. literally almost everything in that town plays on the name.
That's what Jamil said.
