SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

The next time you head to a CVS Pharmacy to buy nail polish remover you’ll want to make sure you have a photo i.d.

The chain has adopted a new policy meant to curb the making of meth.

Acetone, the key ingredient that helps remove polish from your nails, also happens to be a common ingredient in the meth-making process.

A CVS spokesman said the company based the policy on regulations which control the sale of potential ingredients in methamphetamine.

"We are continuing to review this policy to balance our appropriate compliance with regulations with ensuring convenient service to our customers," spokesman Mike DeAngelis said in a statement to 7 On Your Side.

A chemist with the Spartanburg Sheriff's Office says he rarely sees acetone used in the production of methamphetamine locally.

He also noted that meth-seekers would find it easier to buy acetone-based products at a hardware store than in the more expensive, small cosmetic containers sold in pharmacies.
