Drugstore chain to require ID for nail polish remover

The reason is because acetone in many removers can be used to make methamphetamine.

CVS wants to scan identifications as a means of tracking purchases and limit the number of bottles to two. That is similar to restrictions already in place on some cold medicine.

This applies to acetone-based removers; acetone-free removers can still be purchased without identification.
