FDA to track pharmaceuticals from factories

The FDA is apparently planning on putting RFID chips in drug containers to track them from factories to pharmacies - somehow fixing a problem with counterfeit drugs in the process. (A law requiring this to happen is 18 years old but has never been enforced due to whining from the pharmaceutical industry; the FDA now says that RFID allows it to be enforced.)

I have a better idea to stop the counterfeiting of pharmaceuticals: if I buy a drug that doesn't do squat, I ask for my money back from whoever sold it to me. Easy.

The FDA didn't care to much about people when they denied my grandmother cancer medication because it could kill her.
