Drugstore chain to require ID for nail polish remover
Another common drug store product is getting harder to buy as people will soon have to show their identification at CVS drugstores when buying nail polish remover.
The reason is because acetone in many removers can be used to make methamphetamine.
CVS wants to scan identifications as a means of tracking purchases and limit the number of bottles to two. That is similar to restrictions already in place on some cold medicine.
This applies to acetone-based removers; acetone-free removers can still be purchased without identification.
