My local pharmacy now keeps its small baskets behind the sales counter because "People keep taking them." [I asked the clerk, "What about the vast majority of your customers who don't?" but got no reply.] They also keep the Sudafed behind the druggist's counter and you have to show I.D. before they'll sell it to you lest their supplies be pillaged by a local meth lab. I've been carded at a Target when buying a container of NyQuil. [And I really, really, don't need to be carded.]
We live in strange times.
