Is it legal to carry pepper spray?

I went to my Crisis Counselor classes tonight, and it's making me aware of the dangers that are out there. I was thinking about starting to carry pepper spray just in case, but the lady told me we have to be careful because it can be considered a weapon. So can I carry it? Or no?

  • Maybe it's a state law and it depends on the state..... If you are unsure, call the police station and ask them. They will tell you.
