To be fair, drugs are destroyed when they're consumed.

Me too. EIP

Great day at the precinct, lou. Now, how about another round of that 89-year-old's slightly expired morphine?

But how are the local fish going to get their drugs if they're not being flushed down the toilet?

Probably how customs destroys any seized Cuban cigars with a series of small fires.

Hey Subby because who wouldn't want to get high off expired aspirin and aunt Dottie's old lithium pills?

Horseshiat. They're just transformed into a different kind of matter.

This is a needed service as pharmacies are no longer allowed to incinerate drugs themselves, at least in Georgia.

I don't want to sound like a hero or anything, but I'll destroy drugs for you and I'm not a cop.

You're welcome.

EIP.

Don't get it, why not flush them or throw them away with wet kitchen garbage.

Why a special trip to dispose of unwanted prescription drugs?

Or the old folks could meet up for a potluck.

So say a person were to donate a bottle marked as Viagra(no end user identifiable markings on bottle) and full of what appear to be Viagra pills(with no markings), when in reality it is a pill that looks like Viagra since someone painted the pills blue and.....
Would the cops get mad and chase you down due to them trying to use these supposed Viagra pills? Even though the pills were supposed to be destroyed.

Side effects may include violent diarrhea, growth of breasts, mood swings and a extended hospital stay.

/Well shiat! How to know that regular peoples are not allowed to act like internal affairs and place evidence in a way to catch drug abusing cops.

//All your pot brownies belong to the force for disposal through an organic drug neutralizing machine that creates fertilizer as an end product.

Same here. Forget the cops, donate to your fellow Farkers. If you charitably supply me drugs, I'll charitably consume them for you.

Seeps into the water supply/everything.

That's why traces of antibiotics are in water. It's actually kind of a big problem.

At gun "buybacks" there are private buyers who stand outside and are allowed to make offers. I wonder if the same policy applies here.

Someone could find a way to pass off Colloidal silver as one of the suspect drugs and watch to see which cops turn blue and there ya go.

Flushing them is horrible for the environment as thesis dissolve into particulates that are too small to be filtered out by water treatment facilities. Thus we now have birth control, antidepressants, antibiotics, etc polluting our water supply.

Guess I am behind the time. Note I don't do this, as I don't have prescriptions.

/Why not in a nasty sealed container in the garbage then?

It's not really that exciting subby. They do this at special recycling stations, around Earth Day, because it's bad to flush expired pills down the toilet and risk contamination to the water supply.

At the same time, you can also drop off old paint cans and computer/electronics equipment that may contain toxic elements, to be properly disposed of.

Hrmm, I'm allergic to penicillin, but I've never had trouble with tap water.  Hopefully I never do.

"Okay," I'll be right "there."

These take-back programs are probably buying you a few years.

I suppose that would result in newspaper articles about antidepressants in the water supply.

I just incinerated a small quantity of cannabis. Just doing my part to help win the war on drugs.

Georgia police promise to "destroy" smoke any "unwanted" drugs you might want to "donate"

Headline was slightly inaccurate and required a fix.

Ditto. Those near Lexington KY, tell me where to meet you.

7 years ago I found ~30 generic xanax in an alley next to a trash can. They were expired 2-3 years but worked just fine. They lasted for about 5 years too: I got buzzed on 2-3 a couple times but mostly took 'em 1/2 a pill at a time only when really needed, like when I was a nervous wreck but couldn't have booze on my breath.

Moderation in all things. You can't kill yourself with 30 xanax anyway.
