This item is legal, depending upon how it is used. The treaty which applies is the Chemical Weapons Convention, which makes it legal to use riot
control agents (non-lethal type materials such as intended for this projectile) as well as even lethal agents (excluding nerve agents and mustard),
for the purpose of Law Enforcement. The question then comes to - what is Law Enforcement? Riot control agents (RCA) have been used in Bosnia and
Kosovo, under the assumption that these were international law enforcement - never disputed by the UN. So in theory these projectiles could also meet
the definition. The only way to prove otherwise would be after the fact, once they are mis-used.
