Got drugs?

Many of us have prescription medications we needed after surgery or for a specific illness – and many of us have those leftover or outdated medications still in the cabinet.  Keeping them can be dangerous: we can inadvertently grab those unneeded meds when groping in the medicine cabinet for aspirin or another medication or guests, maybe grandchildren, can access those drugs we no longer need.

On Saturday you can get rid of those drugs – safely.

Saturday is National Take-Back Initiative:  from 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. law enforcement groups across the country will receive your outdated and/or unused prescription medications. Check the website for a location near your home.
