A lot of products that are aerosol have this restriction. I want to say they checked my ID when I bought brake/parts cleaner.

Good nails all but Alfred_B is the hammer.

Years ago I remember being eyed when I bought styrene plastic glue. They wanted me to buy a model car.

Dimetapp contains ingredients used to make meth. Maybe not the kids version but they simply don't differentiate. Same thing applies with medicines like Sudafed.

Get all that up here, have to sign a waiver with ID for certain cold meds too IIRC, or at least show ID and they enter it, been years since I bought anything like that.

It’s so bad in the Seattle area with junkies, theives and tweakers Domino’s won’t give me MY change after already paying for my pizza with cash and handing them a $20 until the manager signs off on it crzy

Loperamide aka Imodium A-D is sold over the counter, has an opioid in it and if you swallow enough of them, you can get high. Next time your at a Dollar general or Family Dollar, notice if they have store brand Anti-Diarrhea meds in stock.
They are often sold out.
