Google Polling AdSense Publishers on Showing Pharmacy Ads

A WebmasterWorld thread has reports of Google sending AdSense publishers email, asking them the type of pharmacy ads they would be willing to show on their web sites. To take you back a bit, Google AdWords just began allowing certain types of pharmacy ads on their search network.

The email to these publishers had a link to a form like questionnaire. The questions included:

What types of pharmacy ads would you feel comfortable showing on your site? Please select all that apply. Contraceptives (Condoms, Pills, etc.) Erectile Dysfunction Drugs

What types of alcohol ads would you feel comfortable showing on your site? Please select all that apply. Beer/Wine Liquor

Some suspected the email was fake or a phishing attempt, but it appears this email is legit and Google is exploring how to get moe ads out there. Would you show these types of ads on your site?
