Okay, for me, this sucks. I always go to Target to get cold medicine; they have what Wal-mart doesn't and vice versa. Plus my local Taget doesn't have a pharmacy, which means that there will be no way to get medicine from them. :(

I do see where they're coming from though, and it is a good cause. Still, kind of a bummer.

To make sure teens don't get a high off $8 bottles of NyQuil

Yes, it is stupid.

Crap. I hate going to CVS to get freaking nyquil and tylenol. Bastards.

Apparently, people are using the cold medicines to make methamphetamine. :confused: I really don't know how it works; I just know that it sucks.

Yep, I've done research on Meth for school and there are sites that tell you how to make it. Any they get off spot free because they have a warning that states they are not responsible for what you do with the information.

Go figure : |

Next thing you know, they'll be ceasing the sale of fertilizer and house hold cleaners. That way people can't make bombs.

What's the big deal? My husband works for target....so I have to be supportive of the company.

They did already have restrictions on the amount of cold medicine you could purchase at one time - this looks like the next step....

Nothing new. CVS was all over that months ago. Been there, done that.

Next they're going to take down hairspray to prevent me from making homemade flame throwers.
