I can confidently say that I have finally reached the age where I can officially say “Now I’ve heard it all.” Police in Loretto, TN are warning residents against flushing their drugs down the toilet. Most importantly….meth. According to the Loretto Police Department, doing so could lead to the creation of “meth gators” and stoned waterfowl.
“We shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do.” Was part of a statement released on the department’s Facebook page when asked about ducks and geese getting their hands….I mean bills on some meth after a resident flushed their drugs down the toilet and the drugs ended up making its way down the toilet pipes to local retention ponds, according to an article posted by AP News (@apoddities). The department added “we could create meth-gators” if the drugs should happen to flow a little further downstream to the Tennessee River in north Alabama.
On a serious note, health officials have reportedly warned that drugs and other pharmaceuticals could eventually reach the drinking water supply. So, if you care about the environment….try not to flush your stash down the toilet when the police raid. Maybe you could try to hurry up and smoke it all as the police are kicking in your front door instead. Hope you got some extra strong lungs and some strong padlocks on that door, if that’s the option you decide to take.
