Halons are low-toxicity, chemically stable compounds that have been used for fire and explosion protection from early in the last century. 

Halon has proven to be an extremely effective fire suppressant. Halon is clean (i.e.,leaves no residue) and is remarkably safe for human exposure.

Although some states are banning the sale of certain hand-held extinguishers for non commercial uses, the answer is generally no. 

However, effective January 1, 1994, the production and importation of new Halon was banned in the developed world through an international agreement called the Montreal Protocol.
