What the Official South Carolina State Law Says


Offenses Involving Weapons


(16) "Poisonous gases" mean a toxic chemical or its precursors that through its chemical action or properties on life processes, causes death or injury to human beings or other living organisms. However, the term does not include:
(a) riot control agents, smoke and obscuration materials, or medical products which are manufactured, possessed, transported, or used in accordance with the laws of this State or the United States;
(b) tear gas devices designed to be carried on or about the person which contain not more than fifty cubic centimeters of the chemical; or
(c) pesticides, as used in agriculture and household products.

(This does prohibit pepper spray as pepper spray is not a tear gas or tear gas device.)
