Looks like you can still legally buy it until January 1, 2006. See 
It also will be illegal to trade them after that date.

The list is a proposed list, but the State of Massachusetts does not 
indicate whether the proposed list was adopted or not. I looked in the 
Massachusetts code of regulations, but I didn't see it. I am not 
familiar with the peculiarities of researching Massachusetts law, so I 
cannot be of further assistance. Ask me about California and I can tell 
you right away.
