The United States is home to the most heavily drugged population in human history—and we’re not talking “illicit narcotics” here either.
In fact, we take so many prescription medications that it’s not only one of the leading causes of death for Americans, we also have so much medication in our urine that it shows up in the water supply.
With so many entirely legal drugs out there, someone recently had a bright idea.
Why don’t we put big post office boxes at law enforcement agencies so people can discard their unwanted or unused prescription medication?
What could go wrong, right?
Unfortunately, some folks can’t resist the temptation of that unsecured and gigantic box of free pills. Who knows what’s even in there? It could be worth a fortune.
For more on this, search for an article entitled “Police chiefs accuse Ohio sheriff of posing as DEA rep to steal drugs from their departments.”
Needless to say, this makes the so-called war on drugs and increasingly tough sell as Americans evolve on drug policy.
