India's military experimenting with mega-hot jolokia pepper grenades.

A friend sent me this article, Indian military weapons labs are toying around with the hottest pepper. At 1,000,000 Scoville units, it's said to be the hottest chili on the planet. To give an idea of the "hotness" of these 'Ghost Peppers', Tabasco sauce ranges from 2,500 to 5,000 Scoville units, I would NOT want to be sprayed or gassed with jolokia spray or grenades!! I think it's cool that more international research is being done on less-than-lethal or non-lethal weapons. A mega-hot pepper grenade might be just what the doctor ordered for hostage-takers, or even crowd control.
