If iodine is a list 1 chemical how can you buy if off ebay? does the DEA just not care or do they start tracking you right after you buy it?

(1) You can be outside of the US, where the List 1 regulations do not apply. (2) You can register with the DEA as an important, with a fee not worth the money for 100 g of I2.

Listed chemicals can often be purchased outright by consumers. Unless something has changed, it is the selling of listed chemicals that is regulated. Sellers of listed chemicals must be registered, and they must keep records of sales, especially if the amount delivered exceeds guidelines.

So, you may on occasion be able to purchase listed chemicals. But, if you wish to avoid legal problems, you had better not resell those chemicals if you don't have a permit..

This is true if the buyer is in the US and the seller is also in the US. My previous post was ambiguous when read in isolation. I was implicitly referring to import transactions, where the buyer is in the US and the seller is outside of it. My apologies for the confusion.

Large amounts of KI and NaI are also considered suspicious. Still, how can I2 be a watched chemical. It is not a compound. It is an element. Sloppy thinking.

Wikipedia has this to say about it,

"In the United States, the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) regards iodine and compounds containing iodine (ionic iodides, iodoform, ethyl iodide, and so on) as reagents useful for the clandestine manufacture of methamphetamine."

Importing a listed chemical into the U.S. without a permit, may be prosecuted as a serious crime. Don't attempt it.

On the other hand, possessing said chemical, or purchasing it from a domestic supplier, may be just fine.

Depends on the chemical, and which list it is on.

If you happen to live near a nuclear power plant, having a spare kilo of Potassium Iodide around the house, might be a damned fine idea. When your local reactor undergoes a meltdown, and starts spewing radioactive Iodine into the atmosphere....Daily doses of your "suspicious" KI, could be the factor that spares you the embarrassment of developing thyroid cancer.

Arguing that a law may be illogical may make you feel better, but it won't stop you from being prosecuted if you violate it, even if you are right and the law is silly. So, step one: vent your frustration. Step two: figure out how to accomplish your goal without risking prosecution. Remember, being right is not enough to keep you safe.

I bought a bottle from this guy and would highly recommend him. The shipping was fast and the bottle was sealed. Upon opening and weighing, it contained, as advertised, 100 grams of iodine.

Haven't we beaten the Iodine horse to death already?

I really like "official" reagent bottles, so pretty
