The article states that the Office of National Drug Control Policy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are both interested in this.

So now what? The community must submit to an aggregate urinalysis? I didn't consent to this!
I want to find out what cities this was done in...

Kinda creepy to think that people are testing the waste water to further enhance demographic charts. What's next? Scouring the trash for genetic material to figure out where everyone is and what they throw away? Sheesh.
