I asked on the other thread..

What is wrong with the toilet? I can't imagine there being an environmental issue with the medication getting diluted out during the sewage processing.

Had this arguement last year.

I still say
Flush them and avoid ANY possibility of MISUSE by others.

Save the gas, avoid and reduce the traffic and not worry that someone accidentally grabbed a handful.Also being in possession of any medications in any unmarked container is a drug crime.

BTW: I agree with what their ultimate goal, just not the way it is being handled.
