I was reading in the local court reporting that a person was arraigned on charges of "possession of nitrous oxide in a motor vehicle". So I looked up the ordinance.
Quote:
513.11 HARMFUL INTOXICANTS; POSSESSING NITROUS OXIDE IN MOTOR


VEHICLES.





(a) As used in this section, “motor vehicle”, “street” and “highway” have the same meanings as in Ohio R.C. 4511.01.






(b) Unless authorized under Ohio R.C. Chapter 3719, 4715, 4729, 4731, 4741 or 4765, no person shall possess an open cartridge of nitrous oxide in either of the following circumstances:





(1) While operating or being a passenger in or on a motor vehicle on a street, highway, or other public or private property open to the public for purposes of vehicular traffic or parking;





(2) While being in or on a stationary motor vehicle on a street, highway, or other public or private property open to the public for purposes of vehicular traffic or parking.






(c) Whoever violates this section is guilty of possessing nitrous oxide in a motor vehicle, a misdemeanor of the fourth degree.





(ORC 2925.33)


Is a 10# bottle legal?

Sounds like I need to team up with my dentist and open a nitrous store at the track.

I believe it is fine as long as when your pulled over its not open in the vehicle is fine I have a few friends with camaro's that have gotten tickets when pulled over and they searched car and found bottle to be open but I'm sure it depends on the cop you get some are straight a******* and the rest are perfectly fine

That's the key, but each state varies. My take would be that unless you are on a private race track it would be illegal to have a bottle open under any circumstance.

I'm in agreement the key is open bottle. I'm sure this put remote operators into a grey area.

That's why you hide the bottle.
