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.
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."

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!
Thanks for posting this info.
