That means that if you have an electrical transformer, the police have probable cause to bust you for manufacturing drugs. (The charge may not stick, but they can bust you on it.)

You have to have a permit from the State of Texas to buy a transformer.

Own a UPS for your computer? Guess what's in there?

I probably have about 20 transformers, not including the ones in my pile of electronics parts and tools.
