You already do.

Try publishing a textbook which contains exact synthesis instructions for anything prohibited under the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993, Wassenaar as well as, let's say, the exact instructions for the additives you need to put into the growth medium for Yersinia Pestis (the ghastly thing is actually a royal PITA to grow at scale, it will start and then just die out unless you really know what you are doing).

You _WILL_ get a visit from some gentlemen in black suits in a vehicle with blacked out windows.

By the way - I have both stashed somewhere in the remote corners of my brain in violation of relevant UK Thought Crime laws.
