Some of the most liberal gun laws yet people are not allowed to have Erlenmeyer flasks w/o a permit. That's crazy. It may even be easier to buy a gun than lab equipment.

I hope you were smiling when you wrote that pardner...   ;)

That is bizarre.  If I were in Texas I'd need a whole s***load of permits.   8)

I am sure it is completeley impossible to manufacture meth without erlenmeyer flasks as well. There couldn't possibly be some other non-regulated glass ware that would work right? unless you also need a permit for measuring cups, mason jars and pyrex baking dishes.

You don't even need anything that fancy.  A lot of meth is made using the small batch "shake & bake" method these days.  It can be done in a plastic soda bottle.  http://www.bing.com/videos/watch/video/shake-n-bake-meth/p3sapwz  The company I work for bid on and won a State contract to do meth lab hazmat cleanups, but we only got a couple calls over a whole year because the sneaky meth rats do this now instead of setting up a whole lab.  They do it because it's mobile and harder to get caught.  It can be done in the back seat of a moving car and, if the cops show up, the meth rats can toss the whole "lab" out the window and drive off.

I can't think of a rationale for such a steep price...
