Can you even legally sell stuff with asbestos ?

Don't get me wrong. I was actually curious about legality having seen 
tents go up on buildings to remove it.  It is obviously not toxic until 
it gets airborne. Like the RoHS rules they have all sorts specific rules 
about transfer of things like this.  Not like many of us have 1960's era 
machines but, it made me wonder. I'm not so much worried about getting 
cancer from it as much as if I could run into legal trouble.
