Under the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention, there is a world-wide ban on the production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons and their precursors. Notwithstanding, large stockpiles continue to exist, usually justified as only a precaution against putative use by an aggressor.

Project Censored reported in 2017 that "in prisons and jails across the United States, far from any conventional battlefield or public scrutiny, tear gas and other chemical weapons are routinely used against people held captive in enclosed spaces, including solitary confinement."
