Did You Know? Michigan Law

It is against the law to use, or even to convince someone that you have used, electronic harassment devices for the purposes of torture, harm, or death. Even to manufacture or sell one.

Act. 257 of 2003

It’s a felony, in fact.

Therefore, whoever has been doing this does not fear state law. Interesting.

From Wikipedia (Electronic harassment):

Michigan

Public act 257 of 2003 makes it a felony for a person to “manufacture, deliver, possess, transport, place, use, or release” a “harmful electronic or electromagnetic device” for “an unlawful purpose”; also made into a felony is the act of causing “an individual to falsely believe that the individual has been exposed to a… harmful electronic or electromagnetic device.”[1]

Public act 328 of 1931 makes it a felony for a person to “sell, offer for sale, or possess” a “portable device or weapon” the emits an “electrical current, impulse, wave, or beam may be directed, which current, impulse, wave, or beam” can “incapacitate temporarily, injure, or kill”. [2] This can apply to Tasers or handheld lasers, etc.

I guess that explains pepper-spray as the CBG NLW of choice.
