National Drug Take-Back Day starts Saturday

National Drug Takeback Day Set For Saturday

Walla Walla: Saturday, October 27th, 10 a.m.to 2 p.m., Walla Walla Police Department, 54 E. Moore St.

The message is, don't flush your expired, unused or unwanted prescriptions, turn them in.

In the last five years, Minnesota has collected almost 100,000 pounds of prescription drugs through take back events.

The post DRUG TAKE BACK: "Don't become an accidental drug dealer" by not disposing of unused medications properly appeared first on WDEF. They also say they don't want people to unintentionally become a dealer by selling drugs they don't need.

According to Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel, drug take back events are part of the solution to fight the opioid epidemic.

What to Expect From Apple's October Mac Event
Rather than hosting the press in California as it usually does, Apple is coming right to PCMag's backyard here in New York City . Even better, thanks to its beefy internals, the iPad Pro would be able to output 4K HDR video to an external monitor over USB-C.

Anyone could drive up and drop off medications, no questions asked.

The latest Drug Take Back Day is this weekend, offering another opportunity to dispose of prescription drugs that are no longer needed.

Since the first Take-Back event in Alabama, in September of 2010, the program continues to increase in the amount of drugs collected. Collection sites will be set up at police stations, transfer stations, pharmacies and other locations on Saturday. The study shows that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

Do you have unused prescriptions filling up your bathroom cabinet? Flushing medications down the toilet or throwing them away creates a potential safety and health hazard.
