More Sin Taxes?

From Natalie Chandler's blog on the C-L, we learn that:

House Ways and Means Committee members had a lively debate over hiking cigarette taxes today.

Quote of the Day goes to House Judiciary B Committee Chairman Willie Bailey, D-Greenville:

"I think we need a tax on all sins, including lying. Then we'd have no kind of revenue problem. (Tax) alcohol, Viagra .. then we'd have no problem with revenue."

My question is:

What about people who lie about drinking while taking Viagra? Do they pay one tax or three?
