Bill aims to ban sale of DXM to minors

Legislation currently making its way through the Pennsylvania House of Representatives would ban the sale of a common over-the-counter medication to minors out of fear of abuse and misuse of the drug.

 

House Bill 1951, sponsored by Rep. Tarah Toohil (R-Luzerne), would move over-the-counter cough medicines with dextromethorphan (otherwise known as DXM or DM) behind the pharmacy to be sold only when proper identification ensures the person buying the medicine is over the age of 18.
