medications (plural noun)
    1. a substance used for medical treatment, especially a medicine or drug
In the United States, The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates sunscreen as a drug.
"The use of the term “sunscreen” or claims regarding sun protection on a product’s labeling may cause to be subject to regulation as a drug." [1]

I extend my previous post; Con has yet to provide an argument to back up their claim that sunscreen is not a medication.

Check the dictionary. First "medicine, then "sunscreen". THEN you'll understand!

Reasons for voting decision: Con argues that sunscreen should not be a medication because then you'd have to be a certain age. The resolution says "Is it medication", so Con makes an "Is/Ought fallacy"; he says it shouldn't be to prove that it isn't so. Pro shows via definition that the FDA does say sunscreen is a medication. While this doesn't quite show that sunscreen is a drug (merely appealing to authority), it's more relevant to the resolution. Since Pro had at least some argument, I'm voting them. Con told me to research definitions myself, whereas Pro did use a source. So Sources points go to Pro. S&G and Conduct was good from both.
