mussels with opioids?

Not sure what to think about it. If there are that much opioids in those waters, it could also be some smugglers dumping their stash in the water if they though they might get caught... But on the other hand, I have read that the US is nowadays the only place among modern countries where heavy drugs use in increasing, and specifically heroin.
I do know that in Stockholm for instance, a city that prides it self for having good quality tap water safe for drinking, there was some tests confirming a high presence of pharmaceuticals and especially antidepressants. The pee/sewage water is recycled into "safe" water (sounds kind of disgusting actually), which is not that safe.
