More than 20 states have collection programs for unused medications to try and stop the mass dumping into our water supply. A 2008 Associated Press investigation found at least 46 million Americans are supplied with drinking water that has tested positive for traces of pharmaceuticals. Ouch. These "take back" drug programs help clear narcotics out of cabinets so that they aren't sold on the streets. They also help the environment. This is a win-win for everyone. The biggest problem, however, is funding for these programs. I am thinking that the solution is to mix it altogether and create one big slurry shake for "anything that ails ya". You know, like the old time snake oil salesman used to do. I guarantee you could sell a ton of the stuff. And whatever you don't sell you repackage to send off to third world countries. Who's in with me?
