Robert enters into a grocery shop to buy some household goods which was displayed on the shelves. He selects and keep the goods in the basket. On the other side of the shelves, he picked a medicine can only be sold by register pharmacist. Robert, while taking his basket towards the counter he was approached by an undercover officer who now questions his purchase of medicine without the supervision of a registered pharmacist.
Consumer rights on a global scale provisions that consumers have the right to freely choose among products offered in the market. In Roberts positions, he was practicing his rights as consumer which was to freely choose products provided in the grocery shop. The undercover officer in his exercise to execute his powers, did not rightfully question Robert. This is because, Robert only chose the medicine because it was available in the market. The officer should therefore question the grocery owner for supplying the medicine to the consumers freely without any restrictions. However, Robert should accept his mistake to purchase the medicine without supervision.
