Remotely-detectable Viagra

Just what every Viagra user needs -- a way for others to tell with the wave of a reader if they are (a) impotent or (b) planning a big evening. Amazingly, Pfizer is now individually spychipping every package of Viagra with an RFID tag. I doubt Viagra users have any clue their drugs are spychipped and can be identified right through their briefcase, pocket, or duffle bag.

Of course, this is a CLEAR violation of the Position Statement on the Use of RFID in Consumer Products which calls for a moratorium on such item-level tagging.

Tsk, Tsk, Pfizer. You'll soon be taken to task for this one.
