CVS Pharmacy Prohibits Sale Of Nail Polish Remover To Minors

Posted: Updated:

A new corporate policy introduced by CVS Pharmacies will prohibit the sale of nail polish remover to anyone under the age of 18.

The new policy is an attempt to cut down on homemade methamphetamine.

"If you know how to bake a cake, and you know the different products to put together…you can make methamphetamine," said Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen.

In the past six months, the sheriff's office has raided a number of meth labs.

Phalen said he applauds the effort put forth by CVS to help battle the production of methamphetamine, but he says that drug users won't necessarily be affected by the new policy.

"If someone wants to make meth, they're going to make it no matter what restrictions you put on certain products. They will make it and that may mean stealing products, whatever they can do they are going to come up with some way to make it," said Phalen.

CVS stores in several other states have already implemented the new policy. The company plans to introduce the new policy to stores nationwide.
