Adverstising prescription drugs in the UK on GDN

I know that in the UK it is not possible to advertise branded prescription medicine using adwords. My question, albeit a daft one, is can I use managed placements, contextual or topic targeting settings within the dispaly network to advertise prescription medicines?

Regardless of the network (whether Serach or Display) only pharmaceutical companies can promote prescription drugs. (And that is also restricted to informative content)
