I.D. required to buy DXM at Walgreens
    #4367508 - 07/03/05 11:03 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Walgreens Programs Cash Registers to Prohibit Sales of Products with Dextromethorphan to Minors
July 1, 2005 - pharmalive.com

DEERFIELD, Ill. - Effective July 1, Walgreens cash registers will be programmed to prohibit sale of all products containing dextromethorphan (also known as DXM) to anyone younger than 18, the company announced. IDs will be required for proof of age.

Walgreens has taken this voluntary action in response to growing nationwide concern about potential misuse of these products. The company previously took voluntary action by limiting sales of some of these products.

"This is not an easy thing for our stores to do," said Debbie Garza, Walgreens director of Government and Community Relations, "but as a leader in our industry we believe it's a responsible move to help parents, educators and law enforcement officials."

Walgreens sells more than 200 cough and cold products containing dextromethorphan.

Walgreen Co. is the nation's largest drugstore chain with fiscal 2004 sales of $37.5 billion. The company operates more than 4,800 stores in 45 states and Puerto Rico. Walgreens also provides additional services to pharmacy patients and prescription drug plans through Walgreens Health Initiatives (a pharmacy benefits manager), Walgreens Mail Service, Walgreens Specialty Pharmacy and Walgreens Home Care.

In such times as ours however, when there is too much order, too much m management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption"

Only some kinds...he'll be turned down for the most effective cough ones unless there is some Children's type exception to the rule.

Only ones I could find non-dxm had an expectorant only, no cough supressant. Most have DXM in them.

The article mentions nothing about cashier discretion...it will be like ringing up alcohol/tobacco...it will ask for ID.

Don't you know DXM addicts send their kids in to get their fix for them?
