Annual Drug Take-Back Day

THE STATE LAST YEAR. THE MAJORITY OF THOSE FROM HEROIN, FENTANYL, AND PRESCRIPTION OPIOIDS. TRACY: POLICE DEPARTMENTS AROUND THE COUNTRY ARE TAKING PART IN TOMORROW’S NATIONAL DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY. THIS IS THE 11TH ANNUAL TAKE-BACK DAY, SPONSORED BY THE DRUG ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. THE GOAL IS TO KEEP UNUSED DRUGS OUT OF HOMES, AND AWAY FROM KIDS AND PETS. OFFICIALS SAY IT HELPS CURB THE STATE’S DRUG EPIDEMIC AND HELPS THE ENVIRONMENT. >> WE’D LIKE TO THINK THAT IT’S VERY IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO DO THIS FOR A. IT CLEANS OUT THEIR MEDICINE CABINETS SO MEDICATION DOESN’T FALL INTO THE WRONG HANDS. AND B. IT ALLOWS THEM TO TAKE IT TO A PLACE TO HAVE THEM PROPERLY DISPOSED OF INSTEAD OF FLUSHING THEM INTO SEPTIC SYSTEMS OR GOING INTO A LANDFILL AND SOAK INTO THE WATER. TRACY: LAST YEAR AMERICANS TURNED IN MORE THAN 700,000 POUNDS OF MEDICATION. FOR A LIST OF MAINE DROP-OFF LOCATIONS, VISIT OUR WEBSITE,
