I am going to buy some organic herbs plants from a local grower, and try to use them as container herbs in my kitchen. What are the best types of pots to use? Terra-cotta? Other? How do I know if the pot is non-toxic or doesn't have lead in it that will leach into my herb plant?

I am such a newbie here it's not even funny. I think I'll get the book "Herb Gardening for Dummies"

I like those big whiskey barrels cut in half. They are big enough to hold a lot of soil and they don't get as hot as terra cotta - I'm in Texas and always have to worry about conserving moisture.
