Age Limit to Purchase WD-40!?

Don't know if any of you have come across this but just this weekend at Lowes I picked up some supplies that included a can of WD, cashier told me there was an age limit of 18yrs and older to purchase WD...now what in the world are kids doing with this stuff to ban them from buying?

Haven't heard of that, but its been awhile since I have brought any.

Are the cans of WD 40 on open shelves or behind some kind of locked screen ?

You'd be surprised at just what all things kids will huff trying to get a buzz/high. Here is a good article to educators put out by the Virginia Department of Education. Page 16 lists WD-40 as a common huff aerosol.

http://www.doe.virginia.gov/support/...prevention.pdf

It's a good pdf file for all parents to read and be aware of:

Here is just a sampling of some aerosols that kids will huff.... taken from the link. Kids are even inhaling propane and fix-a-flat.

Spray air freshener

Cooking spray

Hair spray

Deodorant spray
Furniture wax

WD-40

Spray paint

Insecticide spray
Computer dusters

Oven cleaner

Fabric protector spray

Spray lacquer

Add lithium grease spray. We were doing self checkout at Walmart and had to get the cashier when we scanned it.
