I got this from another forum I visit and thought since BBQ season is upon us, I should share this useful and beneficial information:
Meth cooks are getting the propane tanks from the exchanges at Wal-Mart, Kroger, etc. and emptying them of the propane.
Then, they are filling them with anhydrous ammonia (which they now have a recipe for by the way).
After they are finished with them, they return them to the store.
They are then refilled with propane and sent back for you and me to buy.
Anhydrous ammonia is very corrosive and weakens the structure of the tank.
It can be very dangerous when mixed with propane and hooked up to our grills, etc.
You should inspect the propane tank for any blue or greenish residue around the valve areas.
If it is present, refuse to purchase that one.
You should check out the following website for more details. They also have pictures.

Home depot sells new empty propane tanks for $20. It costs less to get your own tank filled than it does to exchange an empty tank for a full one at a store or gas station.
Why take the risk at all?
