I live in Texas and own several pieces of lab glassware. It's an ansine law, because a lot of Meth cookers don't waste their $$$ on lab glassware. They prefer the anything cheap they can buy at homedepot or lowes method. It's a stupid law so when in doubt order off the internet...

I'm sure this thread is dead by now but i thought i would ask a question in case someone is still out there... Are sellers required to report people that buy a flask to the Department of Public Safety? I received a flask from Amazon. They didn't ask for a permit and i don't have one. If they don't report it then i'm in the clear i guess. thanks.

I believe the law actually states only the seller needs a permit. Not the buyer. Got mine off Amazon too.

Weird that he texted you instead of calling the fire department...

Absolutely ridiculous! I've not heard of such a thing.

As I said in the other thread that the thread necromancer started, I'm pretty sure it's a largely unenforced law. Plenty of Texas-based homebrew shops sell them, and I've certainly never heard of homebrewers getting arrested over the issue or having to submit to searches.

I think they just have it on the books as an add-on charge for when they bust meth cooks.
