Police will destroy about 1.5 tons of illegal drugs seized last year now that court cases related to the drugs have wrapped up.
Cocaine, heroin, marijuana and various pills will be taken to an undisclosed location this morning and burned, police officials said in a release. The disposal is the first of the year.
The drugs have a street value of $83.3 million, police said. In 2007, about $64.5 million worth of drugs were seized by officers, police said.

Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
