Can I purchase syringes legally in Hawai‘i without a prescription?

Yes. Hawai‘i pharmacies are permitted by Hawai‘i law to sell syringes for the purpose of preventing transmission of disease. Contact the CHOW Project or your local pharmacy for more information.

You can get them in Massachusetts withOUT a Rx since 2007, I believe. One needs to show ID to prove they are over 18 years of age.

Re: Laws on Purchasing Syringes/Needles W/O Rx in the US

Kailey,

Can you provide a source for that, please? I'll change it, I'd just like a source to be sure, ya know? If anyone else thinks the info on a state is incorrect, just post a source and I'll change it!

Okay, update. I found this http://www.boston.com/news/local/mas...s_of_syringes/
and it appears otc sales of syringes are legal in MA.

Re: Laws on Purchasing Syringes/Needles W/O Rx in the US

Glad you found a source. I know personally, because I've visited many pharmacies in Massachusetts and purchased syringes. *LOL* I realize, however, that I might not be the best source.

Thanks for posting this list, by the way! I've heard, however, that there's only one state left that doesn't allow OTC sales. There were 2, but MA was one of them. Of course, I can't remember what the other state is.

I can only suggest that if someone is in one of the states that says OTC sales AREN'T legal (or even if it says you have to purchase insulin to get them) to try at a pharmacy anyway. You never know...the law could have changed recently, or you might get a really nice pharmacist!

Re: Laws on Purchasing Syringes/Needles W/O Rx in the US

In Pennsylvania, you can get syringes without a prescription. He's watched his brother pick up 10 packs numerous times. His brother said they do ask for ID, but according to the source below there is no age limit, nor a limit on the number of syringes that can be purchased at a time. This may vary from pharmacy to pharmacy, but it's apparently not the law.

Here's a source to go with that. http://stopthedrugwar.org/chronicle/...nsylvania_allo

Re: Laws on Purchasing Syringes/Needles W/O Rx in the US

please remember it is one thing to purchase needles w/out a prescription,but,if you are not prescribed the syringe ,in some states you can be arrested/charged w/posessing a hypodermic instrument under the law. even if unused.
