The War on Chemistry

Apparently the iodine found in a water purification system could be used to make meth, and you know what that means.

    We blew past the absurd exit on this crap years ago and are pulling up to ludicrous.

    Since Polar Pure is just crystalline iodine contained in a small bottle, you can make your own iodine.

    • If Polar Pure is being driven out of business because it contains iodine, how much longer will you be able to buy it yourself?

      Meth: destroying everything it touches.

      • Alpheus says:

        It’s unfair to blame this destruction on Meth. Certainly, Mteth destroys lives. But this is yet another example of bureaucrats so eager to stop Meth at all costs, they forget that everyone else have legal, even rational uses for things, and they trample on legitimate uses of things to try to stop the tiny minority who use those purposes for nefarious purposes.

        Thus, allergy sufferers must jump through privacy-invading hoops just because a handful of people use Sudafed for making Meth; you can be guilty of owning chemistry equipment; and now you can’t purify water.

        This attitude of “We must stop illicit drug use at all costs!” must stop, before all our rights are destroyed.

          Oh, and I should add, it’s not just Meth: The War on Terror has also been a War on Chemistry in other ways (not the least of which, heavy restrictions on chemistry sets).

          For that matter, the BATFE, in its war against Freedom (at leas, as far as I can tell), has had its toll on things like black powder shooting and experimental model rocketry (that is, the hobby of making your own rocket engines).

          When are we going to put a stop to this nonsense?!?

    You aren’t kidding about the war on chemistry. Some places you can’t even legally own an Erlenmeyer flask.

    Polar Pure is a good scientific method to purify water.I support the method.
