SEATTLE, WA — Most drivers in Seattle may be puzzled by the vanity license plate C9H13N, but plenty of crooks likely nod their heads knowingly according to the Associated Press. It's the chemical compound for methamphetamine, and despite a state law that prohibits references to alcohol or illegal substances on vanity plates, it may be perfectly legal. Bradley A. Benfield, a spokesman for the Washington State Licensing Department, said such a license has been granted to the owner of a black 2002 Audi registered in Seattle. The plate may be legal because the same compound represents amphetamine, a legal substance when used in medicine.
