"Privacy Purposes"

Well, Roy Black's spinning hard and I don't know what the relevant law is but I'd be a bit surprised if mere mortals were allowed to get away with this:

He said he had the Viagra in his possession for his use and that he did obtain it from his doctors," Miller said.

Sheriff's investigators confiscated the drugs, and Limbaugh was released around 5:30 p.m. without being charged.

However, the sheriff's office plans to file a report with the state attorney's office.

"We believe there may be a second degree misdemeanor violation, which is possession of certain drugs without a prescription, because the bottle does not have his name on it," Miller said.

A doctor had prescribed the drug, but it was "labeled as being issued to the physician rather than Mr. Limbaugh for privacy purposes," Roy Black, Limbaugh's attorney, said in a statement.

But if that is something doctors and their patients can legally do then fine by me. And, if it is, then I'll actually feel bad for the bloated one. Grabbing people in airports 'cause they have a bottle of Viagra is pretty silly, assuming that's all it was about.
