Google fails me.. sort of.
I just don’t know how to research this.
Matthew and I were watching Law and Order last night and the episode involved a woman that had been a cocaine mule for a year and was now trying to help police apprehend someone. She set up a meeting to deal with the guy and the police told the woman’s appropriately-worried husband that they couldn’t give her real cocaine to use in the bust.
I don’t wonder why so much as I wonder what happens to the cocaine and other illegal drugs that authorities seize? How do they dispose of it, can it be broken down, does it have beneficial purposes once the evidence storage time is up?
