Tipping Point social experiment tests poverty line

Imagine going to your grocery store and seeing prices like $45 for cold medicine, which is normally $9 - and $17.30 for toilet paper, which was normally $3.46.

Recently that was the experience for shoppers at a grocery store in San Francisco's Nob Hill district.

San Francisco based Tipping Point took over the store and set the prices at five times the normal price so everyone would know what it's like to live with poverty line prices.

See what happened in the video below.
