>This is enough to make me start a series called, “Things Only White People Could Come Up With.” To wit…
Got some leftover drugs—the kind that someone else might want to use, such as painkillers or stimulants? Wrap them up in used kitty litter or other pet droppings, the U.S. government advises.
A pilot program at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration is looking at ways people can safely dispose of unused prescription drugs that are liable to be abused.
On its Web site at http://www.samhsa.gov/rxsafety/, SAMHSA recommends ways to disguise leftover pills.
“Mixing prescription drugs with an undesirable substance, such as used coffee grounds or kitty litter, and putting them in impermeable, nondescript containers, such as empty cans or sealable bags, will further ensure the drugs are not diverted,” it says.
Of course some people do not drink coffee. But maybe they have a pet ferret.
“Ferret waste, like nearly any other form of pet waste, can be effectively used to help prevent the abuse of unused prescription drugs,” SAMHSA spokesman Mark Weber said.
This news delighted the American Ferret Association.
Since when do people dispose of old prescriptions anyway? Shit, I got pills from eight years ago and, if in a pinch, I will pop one of them mugs. Most of the time, they still work.
Why give up perfectly good pills just because of some silly expiration date? That sounds like something white people do.
*BTW, that picture at the top isn’t actual cat litter. It’s some nastiness THAT SOME WHITE PEOPLE PROBABLY CAME UP WITH called kitty litter cake.
**I’m just kidding, white people. I luh y’all. I got white people in my bloodline, so I’m stuck with y’all no matter what.
