The "Papachip" is an electronic system monitored by the company CANTV, which "coincidentally" is the state telephone company of Venezuela and leader of the project. The system consists of a fingerprint reader, which controls each user and family to have a certain quota of purchase. Zulia authorities will determine the quota and time, between two to seven days, for the purchase of each meal.
Venezuelans have baptized their ration Cuban-style with the name "Papachip" which will commence on Monday June 10 in the state of Zulia to twenty products, such as milk, chicken, eggs and toilet paper.

I would suggest everyone in the US stockpile toilet paper now before the TP tracking system is implemented here. Once the SHTF it's gonna be a crappy situation when they start rationing TP here and we are only allocated 1 roll per week.
It's better to be a Paper Prepper now than stuck up the creek without a roll later.
