Police Department Offers To ‘Check Crystal Meth For Deadly Gluten’

Cheeky police department offers to test meth for 'deadly gluten.'

Celiac.com 06/09/2017 - More and more people are avoiding gluten these days, even folks who do not have a medical reason to do so.

Perhaps looking to take advantage of the popularity of gluten-free dieting, or perhaps hoping their targets are easily fooled, one cheeky police department in California is offer to run a gluten check on people's meth.

The Newark Police Department posted the offer on their Facebook page. The offer reads: "Is your meth laced with deadly gluten? Not sure? Bring your meth down…and we will test it for you for free!"

Of course, however bad may be, and meth is plenty bad, it likely contains no gluten. Also, gluten aside, anyone who takes the police up on the offer will likely be arrested, which seems to be the point.

The post appeared on Thursday, and by Saturday, had been shared over 80,000 times, and received more than 14,000 'likes.'

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, over 12.3 million Americans age 12 and older have tried meth at least once.

So far, no word from the Newark PD about whether their plan has actually found any gluten in meth, or led to any arrests.

Yes, I've seen these and believe that these were taken during the time period that GM had an issue with a contaminated truck, and this caused them to issue a recall on batches made at a plant. If I am correct about this, that was years ago, and they have corrected that issue. What is the link for...
