What is the best brand and price for Pepper spray? The same question for teargas. What is the MI law on both? What is best for what situation?

See MCL 750.224d

Not bigger than 35 grams

No more than 2% OC

Tear gas is a no -no

Must be 18 to possess

Unjustified use against another is a 2 yr Misdemeanor / $2000 fine

Fox Labs is the hottest at 5.3 million scoval heat units and it's Michigan legal 2%.
I was not aware of any restriction on size?

+1. Thats what I bought for my wife. I read a lot and all roads pointed to Fox Labs, especially considering the 2% limit and Fox Labs is a Michigan company to boot.

Are you sure it's 35g? The smallest Fox sells is 2oz which is ~56g.

ETA:
I just read the MCL. I think it tries (poorly) to say you can have not more than 35g of CS OR you can have OC. It doesn't appear to place a mass/volume limit on OC.

This begs the question, how many 35g containers of CS may one carry on his person?

Any AG opinions or precedents floating around?

MI restrictions on self-defense spray (in a nutshell):

-CS not more than 35 grams.
-Not more than 2 % oleoresin capsicum.
-No restriction on SHU rating or size of canister for OC spray.
-No combination sprays - OC & CS together (except for on-duty law enforcement)
-Misuse or sale to minor - misdemeanor.
-Use during another crime - enhanced penalty.
