That Texas law
To find that Texas law, effective Sept. 1, 1989, go here: http://tlo2.tlc.state.tx.us/statutes/statutes.html (From there, click on Search and then type in Erlenmeyer.)
Interesting, they make it impossible to deep link to the actual statute page. The above link is about as close as you can get. (Actually, the search button links to http://tlo2.tlc.state.tx.us/cgi-bin/statutes/search.cgi but that page redirects and comes up with a much longer URL.)
(Even though they can already track all visitors by IP address, they make a point of having the search page URL include '&CQ_USER_NAME=(your IP address)'. The statute pops up in a new window with the Address Bar hidden, but the URL includes 'CQ_SESSION_KEY=______'. And that's not looking at cookies.) -Whiner01 06:34, 20 August 2007 (UTC)
originally posted texas law
There originally was a statement in here discussing a Texas law prohibiting anything labware like Erlenmeyer flasks being sold in attempt to thwart illicit methamphetamine manufacturing. This has been removed from the page after some page vandalism. Although it is clear that illicit narcotics are perceived as dangerous to society, I don't believe that reporting on legislation related to Erlenmeyer flasks and related materials on Wiki is, itself, dangerous. Therefore I am requesting the edited block of text describing the Texas law be restored to this page for completeness. Specifically, I feel it belongs on the Erlenmeyer page as Erlenmeyer flasks are one of the most known examples of laboratory glassware, having been the subject of many popular media discussions in various contexts.
