BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - Cash Wise grocery stores in the state are selling Narcan over the counter. The FDA approved the overdose-reversing nasal spray to be sold without a prescription in March.

Coborn’s, the company that owns Cash Wish, says grocery stores are seen as a familiar and easy access point for many people. They hope this provides people with a place to go in an overdose emergency.

“You can imagine when you might find yourself in a situation like that, or a family member, a bit of a panic sets in. So, this gives the stores the opportunity to provide our guests with access to this life-saving medication,” said Coburn’s Marketing and Communications President Dennis Host.

All people have to do is go up to the guest services counter ask for Narcan and pay.
