    Default Buying syringes and the law

    What is the law regarding purchasing syringes at a drugstore? Does the pharmacist have the right to require proof of a need?

    I am under the impression that the pharmacist can try and RESIST selling you syringes, but cannot REFUSE to sell them. Am I correct on this?

    What Ulter said. I know for a fact that CA, NY, and IL are very strict.

    Buy them online. Its cheaper and easier to deal with.

    In KY it is legal to purchase them from the drug store but they want your information and description of use. Funny how many inkjet cartridges there are in the world to refill. By the way that is the #1 use given to Rite-Aid

    Insulin pins are a different story, they are given to just about anyone.

    Thanks for the input guys. I wasn't looking for me, rather I had a situation at work the other day so I was curious about the law. Today I learned that a pharmacist can refuse to fill a script if they don't want to do it. Same with selling syringes, at least in my state (NC).

    hmmm...didn't know that, Loco. I'm in NC and never really gave it much thought. The last time I bought pins, I went right up to the counter and told them what I needed and how many (50 I think). They came back with the wrong gauge and length so I explained that it's for a intramuscular injection and that I needed 1.5 inch. They never batted an eye. She walked back and eventually found the correct gauge/length.

    The cashier was nice enough, but not the brightest. She could not figure out how to charge me for them. They were .25 a piece x 50 = $12.50. I told her that a couple of times and she didn't believe me...she ended up separating all 50 into groups of 4 (1 dollar) and spread them out over the ENTIRE counter so she could count them. All the while a HUGE line is backing up behind me...I'm sure everyone was looking at me with raised eye brows. It was kinda fun actually.
