What a nice surprise. Hello. Nice to meet you!
Greetings from Las Vegas!
It’s the BlogWorld Expo edition of Change of Shift!

Many of the more dangerous substances, such as opioids, should be disposed of by flushing down a sink or toilet, the agency said.Included on the flush list are a number of fentanyl, morphine, and oxycodone-based drugs. The full list is available on the FDA's Web site.But the agency said most medications are not recommended for flushing and should instead be mixed with an unpalatable substance, such as coffee grounds or kitty litter, placed in a sealed plastic bag, and thrown in the trash.The FDA also recommended the use of drug take-back programs -- available through municipal trash disposal agencies in many area -- as an alternative to disposal by trash or drain.
