Forum: Destroying Schedule 8 Drugs


“Does anybody know if there are any documents that describe appropriate environmentally friendly methods for destroying drugs of addiction.

“An example I have become aware of was where a pharmacist simply put some morphine ampoules in between a couple of paper towels and smashed them with the closest available heavy item – this somehow seems inappropriate and an OH&S issue!”

    We searched for such documents and found none, but we also found that Oxycontin breaks down well in Coke.

    Oxycontin is a tough little blighter! I will try the Coke next time … There are good documents on http://www.sahealth.sa.gov.au then search for “destroy” but they haven’t been updated for the new formulation of Oxycontin.
