To provide a specific law for the sale of paracetamol to minors
This petition had 22 supporters
By law there is an age limit set in place for buying alcohol, tobacco and cigarettes in the UK. Although all items are legal for consumption, the law in place does attempt to prevent the misuse of these item to minors who may be unaware of the risks involved in long term use or overindulgence. However there is no specific law for the sale of another legal but potentially dangerous 'drug' paracetamol! Although many retail outlets have rules in place limiting the amount that can bought at one time, and an age limit in place for the sale regardless of quantity there are certain companies that, knowing there is a flaw in the current laws will sell, without question, an unacceptable amount of this painkiller to not only adults but also minors!
