REJOICE? Texas' strict glassware regulations seem to have been loosened recently?


https://www.reddit.com/r/chemistry/comments/dew73u/texas_str...

sounds like they rightfully got complaints from homeschoolers and home brewers who were sick of filling out a form every time they needed to order one more item.

I am also no longer able to find the permit forms on DPS

The law was so stupid in the first place. I bet it went down like this:

*Legislator visiting a chemistry professor

Legislator: "Show me how meth is made."

Professor: sets up basic organic chemistry apparatus

Legislator: bans literally everything on the lab bench

Nice! It certainly feels like times have changed over the past 7 years or so. It seems that the 'war on (Rational decision making?)' is winding down. Good for you Texas, still wouldn't bring my lab to that state though! :]

Wow! Thanks for posting that. This is like Christmas in November. The problem that I always had was the DPS inspection requirement. I do my personal chemistry at work, not at home. Unfortunately I couldn't allow them into the lab to do an inspection, and I was too honest to use my home address. Hence you see the posts where I'm building condensers or jury-rigging things together with bent glass tubing and random bits of tape.

Wow I didn't even know about this regulation. I never had a problem ordering glassware but I guess I won't have to worry about it as much now. In fact I even had the fire department at my house when I had a couple of erlenmeyer flasks out in my kitchen and they didn't say anything!

Glad I live across the line in Ark-In-Saw. Texas just sentenced my sister to two years state jail for possession of .01gm. Lovely place.

*edit* Don't get me wrong, not a Texas hater, I LOVE visiting NE Texas (Franklin County area), but ain't gonna live there.

This is very good news, indeed! My years of blatantly violating that permit requirement are finally over. It's honestly quite a relief, even though I never expected anything bad to happen.
