HARAHAN, La. — A local police department in Louisiana is offering to test meth bought by local drug users for the Zika virus on their Facebook page.

"***WARNING: *** If you have recently purchased meth in any area of Louisiana it may be contaminated with the Zika Virus," the post reads. "Please bring all of it to your local Police Department and they will test it for free. If you're not comfortable coming to us, an officer will be glad to come to you and test your Meth in the privacy of your home."

The post has gained national attention, but we don't know if anyone brought their drugs in for a test yet or not.
