Ohio Pepper Spray Law Explanation
In the state of Ohio, using pepper spray as a way to protect yourself is legal as long as you are not using it with the intent to harm others unnecessarily. As with other forms of non-lethal self protection you are free to carry it and use it for self defense. While gun ownership are permitted in Ohio (see the state laws concerning how and where), using a non-lethal product such as pepper spray or an electronic device such as a stun gun, is a great way to defend yourself from danger without necessarily having to make a decision that could have permanent consequences if the situation does not require it.
Cleveland, Ohio, is among the 10 most dangerous cities in the United States. Whether you are a local resident, traveling for business, or visiting, it is very important that you understand the risks and steer clear of the more dangerous neighborhoods. Carrying pepper spray is another way to reduce your risk and keep yourself safe.
