States issue the licenses, so it varies somewhat.  I guess.  In Texas, 
a license is required to buy "restricted use" chemicals and then that 
license holder is responsible for supervising the use of the chemical.

If you think there is ANY possibility of needing to use a restricted 
use chemical, it is a good idea to get your license.  Alternately, you 
can identify a licensed neighbor who is willing to buy the chemical for 
you and then supervise your use of it.
