The Mainstreaming of Moonshine?


What's more American than moonshining, after all? Wasn't one of the first popular uprisings against the US government based on unhappiness with an excise tax?

And the real money is in the drug trade, after all, as James McMurtry points out in his song Choctaw Bingo:

He makes that crystal meth because the 'shine don't sell
He likes the money, he don't mind the smell.
