Over-the-counter Viagra piloted

The anti-impotence drug Viagra will be available on the High Street without a prescription from 14 February.
 Boots the chemist is introducing a trial scheme at three of its branches in Manchester.
 Men aged between 30 and 65 will be able to buy four pills for 50 after a consultation with the pharmacist.

50 for four Viagra, these consumers are certainly being "stiffed".   ;D

The more interesting point is that I heard they were advertised for sale starting on the 14th February, and they had a rush of customers, who were then told that while they could book a consultation with the pharmacist (apparently a requirement), actual sales would not start until the 15th February.
