CVS to Check IDs for Purchase of Nail Polish Remover

Aaron M. Sprecher/Bloomberg via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- CVS plans to start checking identification for the sale of nail polish remover.

Similar to Sudafed and other cough medicines, nail polish remover is an ingredient often used to make methamphetamine.

The policy was first implemented in Rhode Island, but will soon go into effect in all 7,500 CVS locations.

CVS/Pharmacy released a statement indicating that the new policy is "based on various regulations requiring retailers to record sales of acetone."
