A man drank a Power Natural High Energy Drink SX, a product made in Zambia, and got more energy than he bargained for. He ended up with a six-hour erection. Turns out the drink contained Viagra.
Now the beverage is banned.
According to The Guardian:
The ban followed a complaint from the country’s medicine regulator in December suggesting the Power Natural High Energy Drink SX had been spiked with erectile dysfunction drug Viagra...
The Uganda National Drug Authority said in a letter dated 28 December 2018 that it made similar findings after a customer complained of constant sweating and a nearly six-hour erection.
Zambia ordered the manufacturer to withdraw the drink after tests showed it contained Sildenafil Citrate, which has the brand name Viagra, a Ndola local authority statement said.
Needless to say, the Natural Power Energy Drink SX "is very popular among Zambian men," according to The Guardian. These fellows will now have to get their "energy" from another source.

One of the wonderful and terrible things about the internet is how it allows people seeking others with hard-to-find traits to find them: advertisers can find people thinking about buying a refrigerator; people who think they might be trans can find others in the same boat and make common cause; people with the same rare […]
Are we done with capsule coffee makers yet? Sure, they’re easy. But they are not so easy on the environment, and it’s debatable whether they actually make a better cup. Luckily, there’s never been a better time to switch back to the good old reliable drip method – especially when drip coffeemakers have quietly been […]
If there’s one thing that stayed consistent through the last decade or so of tech industry turmoil, it’s the love affair between techies and Linux. There’s just a ton you can do with the OS, and its open-source format means you can customize your rig from the ground up. Apparently not content with that level […]
