While I'm quite sure some down on their luck Hollywood writer is going to do a movie about this (think "Sharknado") apparently alligators are getting hooked on meth and when they rise up against us, I'm sure they won't be stopped.

According to KHOU, a Tennessee police department are warning people to stop flushing their drugs down the toilet because it could get to the gators and turned them into.....(DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN) METH-GATORS.

What prompted this "ominous" warning was the police there caught a suspect unsuccessfully trying to flush meth and paraphernalia at a home. He was arrested but police are using this attempt to warn about getting the gators "strung out" on the meth.

"They’ve had enough methed up animals the past few weeks without our help, So, if you need to dispose of your drugs just give us a call and we will make sure they are disposed of in the proper way. - Statement from The Loretto Police Department

Now while this may be a "joking" way to keep folks from flushing their dope and encouraging them to hang on to it for police to GUARANTEE you'll catch a drug charge its still scary to think that gators are rolling round on the hard stuff.

How about "pot brownies"? Maybe that will help settle them down.
