(Seattle, WA)  --  Researchers say drugs that have contaminated water near sewage-treatment plants have found their way into Puget Sound salmon.  The "Seattle Times" reports drugs ranging from cocaine to ibuprofen to Prozac, along with toxins that include insect spray, have shown up in the tissue of juvenile Chinook.  NOAA environmental toxicologist Jim Meador says the problem could be related to processes used at the wastewater-treatment plants.  Meador says the results were based on samples tested in September 2014 in the Bremerton and Tacoma areas.
