Remove the annoying restriction when buying over the counter tablets eg paracetamol, ibuprofen etc

Comment 5th July 2010

Please look at removing this very annoying restriction (law) that says you can only buy two packets at a time.   But you can go to as many shops as you like, one after the other, and keep buying two packets.  How very stupid is this?

Why does this restriction exist and what is the thinking behind it?

Why does this matter?

This restriction (or law) is a prime example of a nanny state treating us  like idiots.  It's the law that is the idiot, as people have a lot more common sense than this law assumes.  

If the thinking behind it was that it would reduce the number of suicide attempts I doubt that this restriction has make any difference.  Are there to statistics to prove one way or the other?
