OSU is drug testing whole communities, news at 11:00

Interesting urinalysis program going on based out of Oregon State University -- it seems that they can get decent drug statistics for communities doing testing at sewage treatment plants, according to this article. It exposes some interesting patterns, including a flush of cocaine and ecstasy use in affluent neighborhoods, and high meth use in areas that have a gambling industry. Interesting way to get non-invasive information on drug use in communities. Nice job OSU.
