Is it legal to ship dry fertilizer?

Can I ship dry fertilizer (Potassium Sulfate, Mono potassium phosphate, Potassium Nitrate, and Plantex CSM + B ) via USPS priority mail within the United States? I tried to search the forums but couldn't find any threads about this? Just scared people might think I'm trying to make a bomb lol

I get KNO3 in the mail. I've not heard anything about it being illegal to ship in the US. ??

There is no ban on KNO3 in Canada. There may be restrictions on purchasing large amounts, as with any chemical, however.

Yes this is totally correct. I believe there is a limit to how much can be shipped at once. But, that limit is WAY more then any home aqaurium would ever need.
