Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Local authorities take part in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Where you can turn in unused medication today

She is a former nurse and said she knows how risky it can be if prescription drugs are disposed of properly.

CBS 2's Vi Nguyen has the story on National Drug Take Back Day.

The agency noted that rates of prescription drug abuse in the United States are alarmingly high - with 6.4 million Americans age 12 or over abusing medications.

He wanted to get rid of them, but said the pharmacy would not take the drugs.

"Over 70 percent of the time when people start abusing those painkillers, they did not directly get them from a doctor and they did not get them from a traditional street-level drug dealer".


If you missed this year's "Drug Take Back", the sheriff's office says they will be holding another one in the Fall. "That's who we pursue, the trafficker more than the possessor", Capretto said.

The event is all in an effort to reduce drug abuse. "So when they have this we're able to bring it here where we know it's safe and will be taken care of".

Plains Township police were among local police departments taking part in "National Drug Take Back Day".

In Michigan, residents also can anonymously surrender their prescription drugs year-round at any MSP post, from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

Barnes said thousands of pounds of prescription drugs are collected at drug take-back events twice a year across the nation. "The other thing reason why we do this is we don't want it to get in the wrong hands", said Patrick Moody, Moline Officer.
