In a note on the site, United Nuclear founder Bob Lazar says it's not a practical poison: you'd need 15,000 orders from him, more than $1 million worth, to potentially harm anyone, and each order comes electroplated on the inside of the eye of a needle.
The market for polonium on its own, however, appears to be small. Lazar said he sells only one or two orders of polonium every three months. He claims to get them made to order at a reactor licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The isotope is then shipped "directly to the customer from the reactor to insure the longest possible half-life."
Lazar first gained attention years ago after claiming to have worked on a crashed UFO at a Nevada military base known as Area 51.
