A police department near New Orleans, Louisiana is offering to test people’s meth.

Harahan police posted a warning on Facebook that the illegal drugs could be contaminated with the Zika virus.

The post also says, “if you’re not comfortable coming to us, we will come to your house.”

Of course, it’s a tactic to arrest people. The chief admits there isn’t Zika in meth. 

Officers say they also did it to bring awareness to the meth and opioid epidemic. 

The post was shared thousands of times in just the first 12 hours.
