Get rid of old prescription drugs safely April 28

Police departments across the region are participating in the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day April 28 from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm.   Orchestrated nationally by the Drug Enforcement Administration and organized locally by law enforcement agencies, this initiative is a terrific opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted, unused, or expired prescription drugs.

Metropolitan Police Department district stations along with other DC-based law enforcement agencies are accepting prescription drugs Saturday.   The list of locations is on the DEA website.

In addition to reducing drug abuse, the take back program appropriately disposes of drugs collected.   Before the take back program was approved by Congress, individuals regularly flushed unwanted drugs down the toilet.   This is bad for the environment.
