    Molotov cocktails are not explosive devices, they are incendiary devices. It
    is a violation of Federal Law to manufacture or posses them without
    registering them as a "Destructive Device" and paying the tax stamp. Believe
    it or not, you can legally own grenades & such, it takes some paperwork with BATF and $200 for the tax stamp.

    It's not worth it to me to own a $200.00 "incendiary device". :)

    Might explain the low sales of 'Molotov cocktail' licenses.

    You need a license to drink a "Flaming Sambuca" and other coctails?

    I think it's the 'serving' of such mixtures that is regulated. (-:
