    ..to whatever schedule backyard tomatoes are "regulated." And end the whole "piss-cup" routine while they're at it.

    •  Or home brewed beer or wine . . . (2+ / 0-)

      you're not going to get busted for a 5 gallon carboy and a fermentation lock (or a gallon-per-day still, although that's "more illegal").

        Federal law against homebrewing was ended during the Carter administration. I'm not sure of the details, but basically federal law allows you to brew a small amount for noncommercial use.

        After that it took till around 1990 before all of the states did away with their homebrewing restrictions. Georgia (my state) was, I believe, the last to do so.

        I'm a lawyer, and homebrewed for several years in Georgia in the late 1980s and early 1990s, which is how I came to learn this stuff.
