    OTC needle/syringe sale?

    Any one have a reference of where I can find state laws about over the counter syringe/needle sales? Specifically Colorado, USA.

    I know I can order on online but looking for something faster in a pinch for slin pins.

    Thanks!

    PS - I'm a newer member and have already been getting solid feedback on most of the questions I've asked so I owe everyone a big THANK YOU!

    Why even bother? Just order via the intenet. Plenty of places to buy from. You'll have them in a couple days.

    In Colorado syringes don't require a prescription.

    If you need slin pins then just go to your local drug store pharmacy and ask for a pack of 30/31 gage 1ml insulin syringes.

    The price should be about $3 for a few 10 pack.

    This is on the expensive side because you can have a box of 100 delivered to your door for under $10.

    In Ohio no laws needing script.

    Its at pharmacist discretion, usually they say no.

    I was smooth sailing buying 3 weeks worth at a time, then one day, no from EVERY PHARMACY I went to.

    So I just ordered online, cheaper, no worry is they don't have the preferred length and gauge.

    Just make sure you go deep enough to get well into the muscle. I'm pretty lean and I use 25g 5/8in and wouldn't be comfortable using anything shorter.
