(KTNV) -- Another common drug-store product is getting more difficult to buy.
First, it was cold and allergy medications. Now, it is nail polish remover.
Some CVS stores in the New England area are requiring that their customers show identification before buying nail polish remover.
That is because some remover contains acetone, which can be used to make methamphetamine in a home lab.
There is no state law at this time that requires stores to ask for ID. The policy is a proactive move by CVS.
CVS was required to pay a $77.6 million settlement in 2010 after it admitted to selling pseudoephedrine to people who used it to make meth.
