CVS Pharmacy to require ID to purchase nail polish remover because of link to meth production

EDISON - A new policy from CVS Pharmacy requires customers to present an ID in order to purchase nail polish remover from the stores.

The chain says the policy, similar to that involving the purchase of certain over-the-counter cold remedies, is a part of the battle against methamphetamines.

Some nail polish removers contain acetone, an ingredient used to make meth in home labs.

CVS also says it will limit the amount of nail polish remover a person can buy in conjunction with other products that contain ingredients that can be used to make meth.

Sales of the product will be restricted to people 18 and older in Hawaii, Illinois and Ohio.
