Alternate rule works well enough. The "purchase is restricted to those having appropriate license" ?

That would only be if there is a controlled item or substance in the kit and in the Frontier setting I don't see it. 
I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

Several of the drugs in the kits are listed as only being administerable by Medics.  To me that implies controlled substance.  The Medkit 1's are just fancy first aid kits that anyone can use.  2's and 3's are professional medical personnel level kits, all of whom need licenses.

Put another way: just about anyone can apply a bandage.  How many people know how to set up a bolus of ringers lactate?  Or even what one is used for?  What is the formula for determining the proper dosage of anticonvulsant medication by body weight?
