DEA Take Back Day sucessfully collects hundreds of pounds in unused medicine
The Drug Enforcement Agency's National Drug Take Back Day went over very well in Western Washington. At several locations across the area many prescription drugs were collected, preventing potential environmental damage and making our medicine cabinets a little safer.
While the day was a great success, Take Back Your Meds is still working to get a permanent take-back program instated which will place the financial responsibility on pharmaceutical companies instead of tax payers.
