Now this is a good example of stupidity. Who is going to throw their marijuana away and why would someone travel to the police station to discard old or unwanted perscription drugs; a flushing down the toliet would suffice...wouldn't it? I'm thinking this is a way to save tax dollars on the war on drugs....but then again who knows. Maybe Law enforcement (as everyone knows) is losing the war on drugs and this action is just a desperate attempt to stay in the fight. Question is how long will this service be in use. I dont think it will be in use for very long.

You really shouldn't flush old prescription drugs down the toilet. They end up back in our water supply. Many rivers, lakes, and reservoirs have measurable levels of a variety of prescription drugs. Pharmacies charge a handling fee if you bring in old prescriptions to get rid of them. I think what DCSO is doing is providing a valuable community service.

True, it is not good to have perscription drugs and such contaminating rivers and streams. However, I was considering the use of septic tanks, that which we use out here in our rural area. Flushing perscription drugs would not have a impact with natural resources out here. As far as DCSO providing a service, I think not.
