Results are in from this past weekend Drug Take Back Event.
This was the Indiana State Police and the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) eighth Drug Take Back Event for Hoosiers across Indiana to drop off unwanted prescription drugs. This past Saturday April 26th, 12 tons of drugs being dropped off. The Indiana State Police drop off locations contributed 1,752 pounds to the statewide total. The nationwide totals will be available next week. This popular public service event helps reduce the improper disposal of unwanted prescription drugs by providing an alternative to flushing them down the toilet, placing them in with the regular trash or leaving them in the home and making them susceptible to unintended or illegal use.
