Louisiana police department offers to test residents’ meth for the Zika virus

Police department makes humorous post saying meth contaminated with Zika offers free tests to users

- A Louisiana police department announced a faux advisory for meth users about the Zika virus.

In a final attempt to catch the bad guys in 2018, Louisiana cops offer to test people's meth to make sure it isn't contaminated. They're encouraging anyone who has crystal meth to bring it to their local police department for a free test.

The department's cheeky post quickly went viral, garnering more than 3,300 shares.

Zika, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is spread primarily by mosquito bites, but can also be transmitted through sex and from a pregnant woman to her fetus.

China Says Trade Talks With US Planned For January
Beijing so far has pledged to resume buying American soybeans and to at least temporarily lower retaliatory tariffs on US autos. Background: The United States and China have not held high-level talks to resolve their ongoing disputes on trade since U.S.

The Advocate reported on the possibility of contaminated meth and provided readers with information on "where it will be tested for free".

A police department in Louisiana says they're offering a rather unusual service. The Gratis Police Department made an nearly identical post earlier this year in May.

The post has gained national attention, but we don't know if anyone brought their drugs in for a test yet or not.
