Anyone got the lowdown on the ban on NOS, stupid dimwit druggies have kicked the government into starting the process of making it illegal to sell. I'm pissed off to put it mildly!

How can the gov make it illegal to sell Nitrous oxide ?

The bill will exclude legitimate uses and I think we will be in that area.

The stuff we use is not medical or laboratory grade like the pure nitrous that is in the whipped cream chargers etc.

I wont be worrying about going to Webster racing or Tricky's workshop and being told that I cant buy it because its illegal any time soon !

As above.

The stuff generally sold for automotive use is industrial NOS and not pure. It will contain stuff that make it very stupid to sniff.

Besides, government come up with all sorts of bullshit to allegedly tackle problems....in fact, based on that they probably would ban something so harmless ! lol

Hi Stevie
I don't think people who are quite happy to take tomato fertiliser and toadstool neurotoxin to get their kicks are hardly going to bother if their NOs is catering or industrial grade. . .that is unless the industrial grade is cheaper in which case it will be first choice!
Best regards
Mike

Cheap is good Mike. If folk are stupid enough to breathe the stuff then its their hard luck. I'm quite looking forward to the Gov trying to ban the sale of Nitrous for us Smile

Hi Perry
the only problem is that banning NOs on the grounds of it being used by those "dangerous druggies" looks good to daily mail readers and ultimately that is what this government cares about.
best regards
Mike
