Patients who are using the fentanyl transdermal patch and their caregiversmust be fully informedabout safe methods for storage and disposal of used, unneeded or defective fentanyl transdermal patches. Fentanyl transdermal patches should be stored in a safe place and kept out of the reach of children. Safely dispose of used, unneeded or defective fentanyl transdermal patchesby folding the adhesive sides of the patch together (until it adheres to itself) and flushing it down the toilet.
Health care professionals who prescribe the fentanyl transdermal patch and patients who use the fentanyl transdermal patch and their caregivers should be aware of the signs of fentanyl overdose. Signs of fentanyl overdose include trouble breathing or shallow breathing; tiredness, extreme sleepiness or sedation; inability to think, talk or walk normally; and feeling faint, dizzy or confused. If these signs occur, patients or their caregivers should get medical attention right away.

This is not an imaginary made up problem, the pollution of our drinking water. There are other threads to address the other issues you raised that are off topic.

I had an Organic Chemistry teacher at FSU that would disagree with you adamently!
The levels of pharmaceuticals in our streams and lakes are at staggering levels, and they have had documented effects on the breeding habits of fish. So fish are so effeminized that they will never attempt to breed at all. Human males are also the least fertile they have ever been in modern times. There are plenty of conspiracies out there to choose from about whether or not this is intentional, but there is no question that it is happening.
You are correct about the Urine. The majority of the drugs probably get into the system after passing through our bodies.
