Walmart is helping customers get rid of leftover opioids by giving them packets that turn the addictive painkillers into a useless gel.

The retail giant announced Wednesday that it will provide the packets free with opioid prescriptions filled at its 4,700 U.S. pharmacies.

The small packets, made by DisposeRX, contain a powder that is poured into prescription bottles. When mixed with warm water, the powder turns the pills into a biodegradable gel that can be thrown in the trash.

Just give them to me instead.

Damn, I must be getting old. Had an old wisdom tooth pulled a few weeks ago and didn't even have the Hydrocodone prescription filled. Didn't want to spend the $20 when a little discomfort could be handled with ibuprofen.
