Governments and manufacturers justify the use of tear gas and other less lethals by making claims to their safety.

In real-life deployments, tear gas causes a number of different kinds of effects on humans, including serious injuries, and sometimes deaths.

Eyes Tearing

Vomiting & Stomach Upset

Breathing Problems



Skin Burns
