If you absolutely must have meth, at the very least don’t flush your supply down the toilet lest you accidentally create terrifying “meth-gators.”
According to People, Tennessee’s Loretto Police Department shared after officers busted a man allegedly trying to flush his stash of meth down the toilet as the cops were serving him a search warrant at his home on Saturday.
But police in Tennessee are warning about how the public can prevent hoardes of methed up ‘gators from terrorizing the countryside.
Pro-tip: don’t dump your meth down the toilet.
Though the sewer department takes “great pride in releasing water that is cleaner than what is in the creek,” the post continued,<
“they are not really prepared for meth,” which could impact the ducks, geese and other waterfowl frequenting the treatment ponds.
Police “shudder to think what one all hyped up on meth would do,” but more so if the drugs..
“made it far enough we could create meth-gators in Shoal Creek and the Tennessee River down in North Alabama.”
While the idea of meth-gators might seem farfetched, all sorts of drugs, both legal and not, can end up in the water supply. No evidence exists currently that those residues are harming people, though studies have shown fish and other aquatic life have been impacted.
I don’t actually know what a meth-crazed alligator would be like.
It would in part depend upon the dosage and the gator’s size. Alligators naturally have very slow metabolisms.
The drugs in its system, absorbed through its skin, made it more aggressive, confused, and erratic than normal.
Yes so, for the sake of the people who have the dodge meth-gators, don’t flush your meth down the toilet!
