I posted this here rather than the Prescription Drugs forum because Triple C's are completely legal and can be purchased by any age group. Triple C's can be purchased as Coricidin Cough & Cold medicine or other medicines that use dextromethorphan. Because of this, underage kids are often the ones who are abusing the substance. Some stores have begun setting limits, like requiring an individual to be 18, for the purchase of these substances. In several cases, however, the drug is just as easily swiped from the store's shelves. I personally am interested in this because when I was in high school, I abused triple c's. My addiction eventually led my expulsion from high school and family issues. DMX is an active ingredient in over 120 over the counter cold medicines (http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_chem_info/dextro_m.pdf). What do you think we should do about these types of drugs? Their potential for abuse is very high and often the victims are young adults. I applaud stores that have begun setting restrictions, but are they enough? What are your thoughts? Have you or anyone you've known taken these types of substances?
