A. If FDA limited sale of an OTC product to a particular subpopulation, e.g., by making the product available to the subpopulation by prescription only, would FDA be able to enforce such a limitation as a matter of law?
Enforcement would be very difficult. Young girls would just heve their older frends provide for them. Also there is the possibility of reselling ilegally.
