The product is called Polar Pure, and it's essentially 5-6 g of I2 crystal in a special bottle that allows field dosing with saturated I2 solution. The bottle is a clever trick that could be used for other low-solubility substances.

Unfortunately, it falls afoul of the DEA Diversion regulations as a List I chemical. The fee they're asking him to pay is that standard one for sellers of List I chemicals. Whether or not you agree with the List I regulations at all is a separate matter, but past that there's nothing untoward here.

Quote:
Wallace says federal and state agents have effectively put him out of business, because authorities won't clear the way for him to buy or sell the iodine he needs for his purification bottles. He has been rejected for a state permit by the Department of Justice and is scheduled to appeal his case before an administrative judge in Sacramento next month.


Quote:
"Methamphetamine is an insidious drug that causes enormous collateral damage," wrote Barbara Carreno, a DEA spokeswoman. "If Mr. Wallace is no longer in business he has perhaps become part of that collateral damage, for it was not a result of DEA regulations, but rather the selfish actions of criminal opportunists. Individuals that readily sacrifice human lives for money."


Ha.




I weep at the sight of flaming acetic anhydride.

And the activitities of the DEA put in place the conditions that maximise drug-related collateral damage!

'Beavis and Butt-Head'-types, were coming into camping stores and buying everything they had on the shelves," Camps said. "Then they would take off into the mountains and try to cook meth with it."

I love the old guys attitude:

I don't know why he just didn't pay the $1200 and do the paperwork because he was selling a boat load of the stuff. Still, I have to admire his attitude. He he he.

"For Wallace to comply, the state Department of Justice fingerprinted the couple and told Wallace he needed to show them such things as a solid security system for his product. Wallace sent a photograph of Buddy sitting on the front porch."

HAHAHAHA
