Far be it from me to doubt the efficacy of an FPD program, and so the “GOT DRUGS?” turn-in-your-pills-program we reported about as a helpful PSA must have been a winner.
Here’s the success story as reported, presumably, by FPD spokes-sergeant Andrew Goodrich:
The Department collected approximately 150 pounds of prescription drugs from more than 50 persons.
Gee Willikers! Let’s hope it was a whole lot more than 50 persons. Because that figure would mean an average of three freaking pounds of prescription drugs per person.
Now it could be that the humans of Fullerton are a lot more doped up on Vike and ‘ludes than I might have imagined. Or it could be that the Good Sarge just made up some numbers without even thinking anyone would do the math.
Or maybe nobody bothers to proofread the blurbs on the department’s web page.
