intended

Fixed in the mind; designed; purposed. As used in a statute barring a right to recover the purchase price of preparations intended or designed for illegal use, the words are held to include a design and intention on the part of the vendor that the preparation sold by him will be used in an unlawful manufacture. The word intended is held to mean more than mere knowledge and to import knowledge of the seller accompanied by some act on his part indicating consent to or encouragement in the unlawful use. Jacobs v Danciger, 328 Mo 458, 77 ALR 1237, 41 SW2d 389.
