Plan B consists of two pills taken 12 hours apart within three to five days of sexual intercourse. The dosage of contraceptive drug in these pills is 12 to 15 times that of a regular contraceptive pill.

Never before has a higher dose of a particular drug been made available OTC while a lower-dose preparation still requires a prescription.

Why not just get government out of our medicine cabinet, and let adults buy whatever pharmaceuticals they want?
