Thailand Will Ban Sale of Viagra to Foreigners Starting in May. Really?

 

According to Thai Visa, the latest news in Thailand is, beginning in May, Thai pharmacies will no longer be allowed to sell Viagra to foreigners so……. no more erections for the old guys here. Apparently, Thai doctors are worried that old farang guys are harming their health by taking too much Viagra, so they’re putting a stop to it. They’ll even be checking packages coming into the country, and confiscating any Viagra in them.

Of course, old Thai guys will still be able to buy Viagra. Discrimination, eh?

But……before you believe this ‘news’ as gospel, look at today’s date. Yep, April 1st or April Fool’s Day. And, as I fell for Thai Visa’s April Fool’s joke last year, I’m not going to be fooled again.

Other farangs though who haven’t checked the date, are a bit hot under the collar about it. (Although they’d be far less hot under the collar, if the news were actually true).
