I am interested in setting up a home lab to teach myself organic
I need to know if the materials and equipment necessary to complete
the equivalent of an undergraduate course are restricted in
europe/asia/the US. Also if expensive and precise equipment such as
scales is really necessary.

Thanks in advance

In some states, posession of a Pyrex beaker is a felony.

Ask Uncle Al.

Lab apparatus, including tableting machines, "a filter, Buchner,
or separatory funnel," Erlenmeyers, Florence flasks, Soxhlet extractors,
"a transformer," heating mantles, etc. are considered chemical laboratory
apparatus that are "designed, made, or adapted to manufacture a controlled
substance or a controlled substance analogue."

Chapter 481, Texas Controlled Substances Act, specifically
statute 481.080. Effective September 1, 1989.

It is interesting to note the ambiguity around "transformer," one
of which may be found in virtually every home that has a battery

The permit form may be found here:
