A Northern California brewer says the feds have O-K'ed his "Legal Weed."

Vaune Dillmann brews his beer in the town of Weed, California, near Mount Shasta.

He prints his bottle caps with the slogan "Try Legal Weed."

Dillmann threatened a legal battle, after federal regulators ordered him to stop using the Legal Weed caps.

Now, Dillmann says the feds have dropped their objection.

He showed the AP a copy of a registered letter from the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau saying he can continue using the bottle caps.

The feds originally said the slogan referred to illegal drugs.
