Don’t be an Accidental Drug Dealer: National Drug Take-Back Day

Submitted by Leena Divakar

Don't be the dealer.

Did you know most people who experiment with prescription drugs obtain it from the home medicine cabinet of a family or a friend without consent– making that person an “Accidental Dealer?”

On Saturday, October 24, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., local agencies are partnering with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration to provide the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. To learn more or to find the take-back site closest to you, visit https://www.sbeap.org/takeback. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
