    Very interesting....

    I love how coke and ecstasy peak on weekends while meth stays consistent

    Well, there goes my appetite.

    Actually, this makes me feel a bit violated. It's just like another way for Big Brother to keep another tab on the people.

    That just goes to show how dangerous meth is. It completely takes over your life and becomes an all-consuming addiction.

    The worst part about it is that stuff doesn't always get completely removed from the water when it passes through treatment plants.

    I personally see nothing wrong with it. There's no way of telling who's doing the drugs through this. It's like an anonymous survey. :)

    Though it is pretty scary that I might be drinking somebody's excreted cocaine. So that's what happened to me. :rolleyes:

    Perhaps we're all getting destroyed by some moron's toiletries. I hardly think microscopic traces of used cocaine are the worst contaminants we have to deal with. Excreted traces of oral contraceptives are far more likely to cause problems.

    I thought of that when I was in high school...it would have been easy for the school to monitor for drug use in the dorms. I'm glad they never got the idea. Big Brother for real.

    Someone involved with the 'war on drugs' will come up with the brilliant idea of having automated sensors at the connections between houses and sewer mains and we'll have an environmental catastrophe as all of the druggies start pissing outdoors. :p

    Here, unless you take a drug test every month, your not allowed to continue school. Mostly because this town has a drug problem.

    How often do they test your spelling and grammar?
