Slashdot | Anti-Terrorism and the Death of the Chemistry Set

Anti-Terrorism and the Death of the Chemistry Set The war on drugs started this ball rolling a while ago. I was surprised to find that you could still purchase one.

I doubt an illicit chemist would be willing to purchase a $160 set just to get 5oz of reagent grade sidewalk cleaner.
