Drug take back set for Saturday

Drug take back set for Saturday

The Multi-County Narcotics and Violent Crimes Unit, Foundations for Franklin County, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public its 14th opportunity in seven years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially risky expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The Substance Abuse Prevention Coalition (SAP) is working with the Drug Enforcement Administration to provide the community with a place to dispose of unneeded prescription medication.

Bring prescription (controlled and non-controlled) and over-the-counter medications, ointments, patches, inhalers, non-aerosol sprays, creams, vials and pet medications to the Take Back location. That's October 28, from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Local law enforcement authorities are teaming up in support of a Drug Take Back campaign this Saturday.

Last April, Vermont collected 5,553 pounds of prescription drugs from 71 different collection sites.

The Tallahassee Police Department is taking part once again the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The service is provided free of charge and is anonymous.

Taking to Instagram, the 34-year-old can be seen smouldering as she pouts at the camera with her hair falling around her face. While Cheryl is all set for her return to X Factor , she admitted that she's in no rush to get back to work.

The program has led to the collection of more than 4.1 million pounds of prescription drugs nationally since its start in 2010.

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.

Missourians can clean out unused and expired drugs in their medicine cabinets on Saturday. Commonly abused prescription drugs fall into three different categories which include opioids, which are pain relievers and have a similar chemical make up as heroin; sedatives, which are used to treat anxiety and depression; and stimulants, which increase attention, energy, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing rate.

Residents can dispose of medications year-round by dropping them off at the Sheriff's Office medicine collection drop box, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
