Massachusetts, pepper spray can only be sold to holders of firearm identification cards.[18]

Wisconsin, citizens 18-years-old or older can carry pepper spray. Go to the following for additional details:

Michigan, pepper spray is legal if it has less than 2% of the active ingredient, this decreases the length of the effects but not the SHU. Sprays containing a mixture of CN/CS are also banned. Otherwise pepper spray is an over the counter purchase.[citation needed]

In many (but not all) other states, pepper spray can be purchased at various stores and carried legally by anyone over 18.
