Regulation Laws

REGULATIONS 

Pepper spray is legal in all 50 states for self-defense purposes only. All states allow civilians to carry a small amount of pepper spray, provided to adults that are 18+ for personal defense.

STATES WITH RESTRICTIONS AGAINST BUYING PEPPER SPRAY ONLINE

As of now, there are two states that ban shipping any human-formula pepper spray within their borders: Massachusetts and New York. In Massachusetts, pepper spray for human attackers can only be purchased locally from a licensed firearms dealer, and buyers must have a firearms identification card. Those within New York borders can buy it from a licensed firearms dealer or a pharmacy. Pepper sprays also cannot be shipped to Alaska, Hawaii or Washington, DC. 

Some states also have laws regarding who can carry pepper spray and thus order it. In several states, for example, convicted felons cannot possess pepper spray. Others require a concealed weapon license. Some cities and municipalities may also have their own regulations, and state laws can change from time to time. Whenever you’re in doubt, contact your local law enforcement agency to verify the pepper spray shipping and possession laws in the area.

While some states don’t have specific shipping restrictions on self-defense spray, they do have overarching laws regarding canister size and content. These regulations also apply to online orders within the state. Here are some of the current state restrictions on self-defense spray:

  • Arkansas: Canisters cannot exceed 5 ounces.
  • California: Canisters cannot exceed 2.5 ounces.
  • Florida: Canisters cannot exceed 2 ounces.
  • Hawaii: Canisters cannot exceed ½-ounce.
  • Michigan: Canisters cannot exceed 1.2 ounces. They also cannot have a strength higher than 18% OC or 1.4% major capsaicinoids (MC).
  • New Jersey: Canisters cannot exceed ¾-ounce.
  • North Carolina: Human-formula canisters cannot exceed 5 ounces. (No restrictions on animal sprays.)
  • Washington, DC: All pepper spray items must be registered at the local police station as soon as they are received
  • Wisconsin: Canisters must have a safety feature and cannot exceed 2 ounces or have an OC concentration higher than 10%. Sprays must be pepper-only with no tear gas or UV dyes. The pepper spray also cannot be disguised as a common item such as a lipstick case or pen.
