DEA Drug Take Back Day

Post by Mudkattgowfo »

It is getting harder and harder to find a place to dispose of expired, unused, unwanted prescription and over the counter drugs. On September 25th the DEA is sponsoring a no questions asked Drug turn in day. To find a site near you go to -

Here is what the Website says -


NATIONAL TAKE-BACK INITIATIVE

Saturday, September 25, 2010
On September 25, 2010, DEA will coordinate a collaborative effort with state and local law enforcement agencies to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our nation’s medicine cabinets. Collection activities will take place from 10:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. at sites established throughout the country. The National Take-Back Day provides an opportunity for the public to surrender expired, unwanted, or unused pharmaceutical controlled substances and other medications for destruction. These drugs are a potential source of supply for illegal use and an unacceptable risk to public health and safety.

This one-day effort is intended to bring national focus to the issue of increasing pharmaceutical controlled substance abuse.

•The program is anonymous.
•Prescription and over the counter solid dosage medications, i.e. tablets and capsules accepted.
•Intra-venous solutions, injectables, and needles will not be accepted.•Illicit substances such as marijuana or methamphetamine are not a part of this initiative.
