    Speak Up! - View Question #83


    printer friendly version

    Question: I read one of your other laws that said nitrous oxide is illegal for drug use but what if it is for your car.

    Answer: Basically, possession of nitrous oxide for use in industrial applications, such as in automotive systems, is legal. There are numerous companies which supply and install nitrous or 'NOS' automotive parts, most of which create faster motors and greater horsepower.

    Likewise, in some medical fields, such as dentistry, nitrous oxide is legally possessed and used as an anesthetic, sometimes in conjunction with other medicines, usually for pain reduction. If dispensed by a licensed physician, its use is, of course, legal.

    Finally, there are small charged containers which are sold to the public for use in whipped cream dispensers, since, interestingly, nitrous acts as a presevative and 'inflator' when mixed with chilled whipped cream.

    Unlawful Nitrous Oxide possession is addressed by Arizona Law (ARS 13-3403.01 and 13-3403.02), which states in simplest terms that it is illegal to sell, give or receive nitrous charged containers to minors. It appears that sale or possession of nitrous among adults is lawful.

    Note, of course, that if a person were to consume any form of nitrous oxide, even if straight from a whipped cream can, and were to become intoxicated to the slightest degree and then drive a car, they could be charged with driving under the influence DUI.

    To obtain a nitrous oxide permit in NJ, you have to obtain a nitrous oxide permit form from the department of "health and senior services." The application is short and simple and the permit is free, however, you have to be 19 to obtain the permit. I found that out the hard way.

    There is no law banning nitrous oxide inhalation in Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Indiana, Kansas, Maryland, Montana, New York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Washington state, West Virginia, and Wyoming. In others it has a very light sentence. Some of those states it is illegal for minors to purchase it within state, so buy it off the internet from another state. Most internet retailers don't actually ask or check. Always say it's for making whip cream.
