Some Corporate Responsibility from Wal-Mart

Oft-criticized Wal-Mart has announced a move even their harshest detractors should applaud. According to an AP report:

All Wal-Mart stores will move many nonprescription cold and allergy medications behind pharmacy counters by June because they include an ingredient used to make the illegal stimulant methamphetamine, the company said Monday.

Thirteen states already have laws regulating over-the-counter medicines containing pseudoephedrine and 22 others and the federal government are working on legislation. Wal-Mart should be commended for being proactive and showing responsibility on this issue.
