Now this is funny....yet has a massive hint of genius! and literally sounds like something straight out of a Beano comic strip!

The Indian Military have said to have created a new "gas like grenade" using a vegetable named a bhut jolokia which is said to be 125.000 times hotter than jalapeno's

The grenades have already been declared fit for use by defence officials,

part of the article is as follows :

"This is definitely going to be an effective nontoxic weapon because its pungent smell can choke terrorists and force them out of their hide-outs," said RB Srivastava, the director in charge of the research.

Trials are also on to produce bhut jolokia-based aerosol sprays to be used by women against attackers and for the police to control and disperse mobs."

I think this is absolutely creative genius...what is everybodies thoughts!?

Having had chili powder explosively blasted in my face, I can confidently say that I'm staying the hell away from India. 125,000X a jalapeno? You'd kill yourself just to make the pain go away!!!

great, I can't wait until they use on Americans who are protesting peacefully. Maybe it will only burn out a few corneas, well worth the price of "public order".

This is not any different than pepper spray and some tear-gas grenades where the active ingredient is capsaicin- a chemical found in most hot peppers including the bhut jolokia. That itself is rather irrelevant because the capsaicin concentration can be adjusted. Regular, over-the counter pepper spray is considered non-lethal and non-toxic but there are people allergic to capsaicin. Considering that, this jolokia grenade has the potential of being lethal itself. And having been the unfortunate victim of inhalation of smoke from some habeneros I was roasting, this would not be a pleasant thing have go off anywhere around you. It took me about 10 minutes to stop coughing long enough to hold a breath in for more than 2 seconds.

*edit to add- but the chili con carne that those habeneros went in to was deeelish

I did chili smoke granade. Worked very well despite it was cheapest chili powder.

This guy holding the chili looks pretty darn scary all by himself!

I wonder if this grenada would be considered a violation of the Chemical Weapons treaty? As powerful as that chili is, I imagine it would cause chemical burns on the skin.

Edit to add: S&F for beating me to this.

Please allow me to set you straight on this ghost chile. I have been using
them for some time now. Believe me they are extremely hot and will burn
you twice. However, you are WAY off on your numbers. The ghost chili,
or ghost powder, or Naga Bhut Jalokia, or just Naga are grown in the
northeast of India. They are rated at a little over a million heat units on
the Scoville thermometer. A jalapeno is rated between 4,000 on up to the
absolute hottest ones at around 7,000 heat units. So, the average
jalapeno pepper rated at say 5,000 heat units does not make the ghost
chili's 125,000 times as hot as a jalapeno. They are approximately 200
times as hot as a jalapeno. That is still quite a bit, but no way are they
rated at 125,000 times hotter.

I grow them in the hot summer along with Habanero and the Red Savina.
Habanero peppers are rated at around 250,000 to 300,000 heat units.
The Red Savina is a variety of Habanero and are rated at around 500,000
heat units. The Habanero was the hottest known pepper in the US until
the Naga's came along rated at over 1,000,000 heat units.

They have been in existence in India for at least two hundred years. They
are called ghost chili because some people that eat them claim to see
apparitions. If you are a pepper lover, try to find some of these little
peppers and you will see how hot they really are. They are not for
pansies in any way. Keep out of the reach of children and pets because
they will do a number on you. No one has ever died from ingesting
peppers, but the ghost chili's will put you down if you are not used to hot.

someone needs to do research
Law Enforcement Grade pepper spray, FN 303 irritant ammunition Scoville rating 5,000,000–5,300,000 heat units.

I hit a young Hispanic kid a couple years ago with a cloud of Law Enforcement Grade pepper spray, caught him breaking into my truck.

It did not even slow him down. The cops found him two blocks away hosing himself off.

The cops had two roll down the windows on there patrol car because he had so much pepper spray on him even after being hosed down.

Other then sneezing from the pepper spray did little to him.

Indians uses lot of spices in cuisine. In west people are not used to spices which may explain low immunity against spices. I found this map of Indian spices
