already doing it for "medical" reasons.....

Novartis AG plans to seek regulatory approval within 18 months for a pioneering tablet containing an embedded microchip, bringing the concept of "smart-pill" technology a step closer

The initial program will use one of the Swiss firm's established drugs taken by transplant patients to avoid organ rejection. But Trevor Mundel, global head of development, believes the concept can be applied to many other pills.

"We are taking forward this transplant drug with a chip and we hope within the next 18 months to have something that we will be able to submit to the regulators, at least in Europe," Mundel told the Reuters Health Summit in New York.

Some how some way the teen will find his frequency and then stimulate himself into oblivion. He won't get any school work done at all then.

I agree that some people would love to jump on this. It couldn't ever be mandatory though, bodies do reject things sometimes, infections occur, etc. It's just one of those things people like to talk about.
