    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.

    Nitrous is technically not legal for street use, but it is not illegal to transport it. As long as the system is not hooked up, its legal. The only place that it's legal to use that I'm aware of is on private property, or a race track. There is no such thing as a street legal horsepower limit, I have seen 1500rwhp cars that are completly street legal.

    Anyone can say "NOS". So long as they are actually talking about NOS (Nitrous Oxide Systems)a Holley Brand company. Nitrous Oxide should never be called nitro, not ever. If your tongue is lazy and can't say the full word, say Nitrous or N20 (the chemical name). As for the people strictling stating it is illegal, get a right. It is outlawed for everyday use in SOME states, not all. Most states will let you use it as long as your car does not go over the street legal Horsepower limit.
