Trade Secrets Act keeps pepper spray ingredients "secret"
Story Created: Feb 06, 2012 at 6:28 PM

FORT MYERS, Fla. - Law enforcement officers rave about pepper spray as a way to get compliance without drawing their guns. In recent weeks we've seen it gain scrutiny as law enforcement uses it as a way to control crowds at occupy events. But if you think it's natural and made of peppers, you're only about two-percent right. In fact, some ingredients in pepper spray are a highly guarded trade secret.

**SNIP**

Mesloh says no one regulates this industry to keep it from happening, not the FDA, not the Consumer Product Safety Commission, no one.

"I can make my own pepper spray right here right now. I just get a bucket, put something in it, get a propellant, shove it in a can and I can put Dr. Mesloh's pepper spray and nobody can stop me," he said. "I can put gasoline in it and nobody is going to stop me. It is completely regulated by supply and demand."

"So if napalm is my secret ingredient then I don't have to put it on there," Mesloh said.

Extra-strength?

Long list of MSDS forms for various pepper spray products. All hazardous/regulated ingredients are listed.

My nephew gave me a bottle of “Dave’s Insanity Private Reserve Jolokia Ghost Pepper Editon 2011” hot sauce for Christmas. One bottle of that would take care of ALL the occupy idiots if used in an aerosol can!

Yummy. My son sent me a bottle of the dried ghost peppers. My wife brought me a bottle of "Mrs Renfro's Ghost Pepper Salsa". I usually use the habanero variety on my tacos. The Dave's Insanity products are wonderful. I have a cabinet full of them too. Excellent over a grilled chicken breast. No concern about anyone else in house consuming my stash either :-)

Ghost pepper would probably be the only ingredient you would need, if you didn't die working with it.
