All you people who pop pills incessently need to stop flushing your pills down the toilet. You also should buy special tiolets to extract all those drugs you are injesting that just go out your urine. Or at least throw them into the trash where they will go into the land fill and ground water to poison other people. Wait ... that's no good. hmm

It turns out that drugs such as antidepressants (especially Effexor) turn little fish into zombies unable to escape predatores.

They didn't test cannibis on fish but I'm sure that isn't good either.

Fish exposed to antidepressants in the wild

[link to www.earthsky.org]

Antidepressants may benefit people, but they’re not much help to fish. That’s according to Melissa Schultz, an environmental chemist at the College of Wooster, in Ohio. She said that antidepressants and other medications we excrete and flush down the toilet are winding up in rivers, possibly harming wildlife.

Melissa Schultz: We’re just beginning to understand how these chemicals affect fish.

Schultz teamed up with biologists who exposed a group of farm-raised minnows to trace levels of antidepressants — in particular, to a drug known as Effexor — and then analyzed the results.

Melissa Schultz: At low levels, the levels we’re seeing in the environment, it can affect the young fish so they can’t respond as fast to stimuli. What that can translate to in the environment is perhaps a predator could come upon them and they’re not going to be able to react as fast and basically they’re going to end up being someone’s lunch.

Schultz thinks we can prevent this problem where it starts: in our toilets.

Melissa Schultz: Some ideas I’ve heard tossed around, which may seem kind of crazy, but ten years from now will be commonplace is to actually treat the waste in the toilet. It sounds kind of gross, but if you know you’re taking certain pharmaceuticals, they can actually be removed — you might have some sort of filter in your toilet so that they’re removed before that water even goes to the waste water treatment plant.

In the meantime, people can help preserve water quality by throwing unused medications in the trash, instead of flushing them.

This is why I drink and cook with distilled water only.
Poor people do poor people things, and rich people do rich people things.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.

What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.

When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it!

when you rob Paul to give to Peter ... ... ... you will always get Peters support!

Actually the sewage sprayed onto crops matters more. As that poisons by heavy metals from medications more than pills sometimes flushed since sewage spraying goes on a full time operation. No one wants to pay for having sewage properly placed somewhere suitable for that to breakdown so and they try to get rid of that as fast as they are able. Somehow such a practice stays legal and has become free for farmers who are not all that bright and think that will help hay growth. The results are long term cow poisoning coming out through the milk.
