Photo: Safely Dispose of Prescription Meds
If you have old prescription drugs sitting in your medicine cabinet, you can get rid of them safely on Saturday. The Drug Enforcement Administration will hold a National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, when you will be able to drop off expired, unneeded or unused prescription drugs at events across the country.
Prescription drug abuse is a fast-growing problem in the United States. In 2009, more people abused prescription drugs than tried marijuana for the first time. Most prescription drug abusers find pills in the medicine cabinets of friends and family members. So clean out your medicines cabinets this week and drop off all those unused pills.
