Meth recently bought in Louisiana may be contaminated with Zika virus, Harahan Police Department announced Saturday in a Facebook post.
HPD says that meth can be brought to a local police department where it will be tested for free.
“If you’re not comfortable coming to us, an officer will be glad to come to you and test your Meth in the privacy of your home,” the post reads.
I am not an expert in infectious diseases but this sounds like a ploy to identify and round up meth users. Not that I have a problem with that, I just would rather see the police do this through actual police work, instead of saying that meth “may” be contaminated with a highly infectious disease and to bring it to police so that can kindly test it for you.
