ID now needed to buy nail polish remover

(WFLX) - Another common drug store product is getting harder to buy.

In order to buy nail polish remover at CVS drug stores, you will have to show ID thanks to a new corporate policy. At some CVS stores, sales of the product will be restricted to people 18 and older.

It's another battle in the war against methamphetamines. That's because the nail polish remover in question contains acetone which is one of the ingredients used to make meth in home labs.      

CVS says the stores with the age restrictions are in Hawaii, Illinois and Ohio.
