CVS stores will require customers to be at least 18 years old with valid identification to buy nail polish remover.
The measure seeks to curb the production of methamphetamine.
Meth is an illegal psycho stimulant and psychoactive drug. CVS is also limiting the amount of nail polish remover customers can buy.
In recent years, federal laws were enacted to require pharmacies to as for ID when customers tried to buy cold and allergy medicines containing pseudo ephedrine, another key ingredient in the manufacturing of meth.
Nail police remover contains acetone which can be used to make meth.
