    of taggants in gunpowder.  The first is to be able to track bombs made with it.  The second is to be able to trace ammo even after it has been fired.  If you want to enable the tracing of fired ammo you have to use far more of the taggant than if you only care about tracing pipe bombs.

      medicines are made based on the pollen grains that contaminate counterfeit manufacturer's products?

      Pollen wouldn't survive as a tracer, but I'm not convinced it would require huge amounts.

      But I can see some limitations because it has to be non-toxic. Wouldn't want to make bullets even more lethal.
