I'm sure you could still buy them and bring them over the border if this was indeed true. Stock up now if you need to. I'm sure AHS will chime in if they are indeed banned.

But at least in Texas in is not illegal to sit in an idling vehicle for more than three minutes, stupid laws everywhere.

No I have nothing to do with Texas. But I sympathize with them. It sounds like it's not a big deal though as they can just order them from Amazon...

It is more of a stacking charge. L.E. is not going to go after people who own a flask, but if they bust your meth lab every flask with be an additional charge.

If you possess any of the following in Texas, you are technically in violation of law unless you got a permit before taking delivery of it:

(A) a condenser
(B) a distilling apparatus
(C) a vacuum drier
(D) a three-neck or distilling flask
(E) a tableting machine
(F) an encapsulating machine
(G) a filter, Buchner, or separatory funnel
(H) an Erlenmeyer, two-neck, or single-neck flask
(I) a round-bottom, Florence, thermometer, or filtering flask
(J) a Soxhlet extractor
(K) a transformer
(L) a flask heater
(M) a heating mantel or
(N) an adaptor tube

But don't worry. The laws have been in the books for 20+ years and are really intended to force businesses to keep an eye out for drug manufacturers. AHS put up a sign for a few months saying "all materials in the store are intended for production of beer and wine" which may have been related to the law. Apparently someone bought their plastic hydrometer tubes and was trying to distill or cook drugs in it and it exploded on them. The sign disappeared after a few months though.

There is nothing you can do in an erlenmeyer flask that you can't do in a mason jar.

I wouldn't put a mason jar on the stove then directly into an ice bath.

There's also a law requiring ducks to wear long pants.
