I agree with restricting DXM, but just so everyone is aware - minors are already nervous about purchasing this stuff. That's why most of them are shoplifting it instead (or just opening the packages right there in the store and drinking the stuff). If you really want to curb its use you are going to have to deny them access completely. Someone needs to educate drug store managers about this.
