Walgreens officials said they are ordering close to 20 shipments of Plan B a day.
Local health officials are not surprised.
"I usually tell the Spring Breakers, don't go home with more than you came with,” said Laura McKinney, the public health services manager at the Bay County Health Department. “You need to be proactive and think about the precautions that you need to take. Use Plan B as simply that, plan b. Not as your first line of defense."
But, some Spring Breakers are shocked at their peers decisions.
"That's terrible, that people are making that many mistakes and having to use this pill," said Eli.
If there is an emergency, Plan B should be taken within three days of having unprotected sex.
If you are 17 or older you do not need a prescription for the medication, women can pick it up at the pharmacy counter.
