Vomit Gas used on Venezuelan protestors in Caracas
On February 15th, the Bolivarian National Police fired canisters of gas at student protestors in Caracas. However, these canisters were not filled with common tear gas. The gas used by police was believed to be Adamsite, an arsenic vomit agent. As seen in the video, greenish-yellow vapor billows in front of the protestors. Ricardo Hausmann, a Venezuelan American and director of the Center for International Development at Harvard Kennedy School said that the gas used by government forces caused protestors at the scene to vomit.
