Pepper spray is a chemical weapon that causes severe pain and temporary blindness. The liquid irritates mucous membranes, causing them to swell and bleed.
This makes it possible to temporarily blind someone who comes into contact with it.
“You can bring pepper spray on board,” says TSA spokesman Michael McCarthy. “It has to be packed in checked baggage.”
The Transportation Security Administration recommends packing the spray in a plastic bag or wrapping it in paper towels.
If you’re flying out of an airport where TSA officers are not present, you should carry your own bottle of pepper spray. If they ask what’s inside, tell them you have a self-defense product.
If you do decide to travel with pepper spray, don’t forget to pack extra batteries for your flashlight. You never know when you’ll need it!
