NailWOONSOCKET, RI. – Another common drug store product is getting harder to buy.

First it was cold and allergy medication. Now in order to buy acetone nail polish remover at CVS drug stores, you will have to show ID.

Acetone, which is found in some types of nail polish remover, is one of the ingredients used to make meth in home labs.

CVS 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.

In some states like Hawaii, Illinois and Ohio, sales of the product will be restricted to people 18 and older.

    You would have to be pretty stupid to buy fingernail polish for the Acetone when you can get it in pure form at the hardware store by the gallon. I agree that Meth makers should be shot on the spot though.
