Books on How to Cook Meth Illegal?

Question by Jimmy L: Books on how to cook meth illegal?
First of all, I am a teacher living in Missouri and we have a pretty bad meth epidemic here. I teach high school kids. I would like to educate them about drugs and hopefully save some young lives from drug addiction.
My question is, is it illegal to purchase Uncle Fester’s book “Secrets of methamphetamine manufacture”? This book is available on amazon for about $ 30.
First of all, I can’t believe something like that is being sold. Would I get in trouble for buying something like that? Once again, I am 100% anti-drug and I would never get involved into something like, but I think it could be a good tool to show kids what kind of poisonous material is contained in drugs. Of course, I will not disclose the info to kids on how to cook it, but I am sure I could use some info from it to affect the decisions of kids in a positive way. I remember one time a smoker’s lung was brought in my school and that made me never want to smoke.
So is illegal or not to buy a book like that?

Bad Movie Night presents DEATH DRUG/SECOND GLANCE Double Feature – Coming June 19th to Bad Movie Night at Ciné in Athens, GA. Show starts at 8PM and is FREE! Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night invites you to a very special evening featuring two life-changing, edu-tainment scare films. First off, Philip Michael Thomas (Detective Tubbs from TV’s Miami Vice) will dramatically teach us the dangers of using angel dust in the cobbled-together anti-drug drama DEATH DRUG. Thomas plays Jesse, a jovial plumber by day and aspiring disco musician by night. While celebrating his new recording contract, Jesse scores some sherm that will “make him hear rhythms he never knew existed”. Instantly addicted, Jesse spirals out of control to the beat of endless Gap Band montages. Filled with slo-mo freakouts, bizarre stock footage “news reports”, and the most jaw-dropping, laser-filled music video ever haphazardly inserted into the middle of a movie, DEATH DRUG is certain to keep you out of the clutches of angel dust addiction for at least 73 minutes. The night’s second feature is the religious scare film SECOND GLANCE. Dan Burgess thinks he’s “missing out on all the fun” because he diligently pushes the Lord onto all of his heathen classmates. After being rejected by a skeezy girl at school, Dan makes a wish that he was no longer a believer. The angel Muriel grants this wish, and Dan is taken to an alternate, godless universe where he soon discovers he must ditch class, drink some brews, and start wearing hideous rayon
