In The Future: Will You Need I.D. To Buy Baking Soda In Montana?
Why would anyone need an ID to purchase baking soda?
It seems like a ridiculous idea for anyone to need identification to purchase a baking ingredient anywhere on the planet. It's a pretty inert ingredient in most anything unless one is using it to make a volcano for a science project.
Baking soda's primary use in baking is according to Every day Health:
Baking soda acts as a chemical leavener. It reacts with an acid to produce carbon dioxide — or loads of bubbles — a process that allows cakes, cookies, and other baked goods to rise.
There are uses for cleaning in many applications like a makeshift toothpaste. It's gross, but it works. It also works as a pretty good deodorizer for your fridge.
But, why would one need an ID to get Baking Soda in the future?
Well, a grip of years ago in Missouri, according to johnlocke.org, officials considered the product to possibly be restricted to people of a certain age on account of some nefarious uses of the ingredient in the manufacturing of illegal drugs such as Crack Cocaine.
According to an How Stuff Works article, baking soda is used in the process to refine and manufacture crack in a process called washing.
We can probably rest assured that our boxes of baking soda in Montana will NOT go the way of a restricted item. As funny as it is to think that one would need an ID to bake a cake in Montana, I think baking soda is safe for the time being.
