Plan B should be immediately available for OTC use. If you want to limit it's use to those above a certain age, simply have the pharmacist or his/her representative ID purchasers. This is just what we do for cigarettes and alcohol. This drug is safer than aspirin, tylenol, and sudafed... all of which have unrestricted OTC sales.
