Authorities collect unused drugs during National Drug Take Back Day

EARL: SATURDAY, DOGWOOD FESTIVAL
MARKET IN FLOWOOD WAS ONE OF THE
LOCATIONS PEOPLE COULD DROP OFF
THEIR UNUSED PRESCRIPTION PILLS,
NO QUESTIONS ASKED. ONE WOMAN SAYS IT’S A CONVENIENT
WAY OF GETTING RID OF HER OLD
DRUGS. >> YOU DON’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
ANYONE ELSE GETTING IT. EARL: BY EITHER WALKING BY OR
DRIVING THROUGH, PEOPLE ARE ABLE
TO GIVE AUTHORITIES DRUGS LIKE
FENTANYL, HYDROCODONE, OR
PERCOCETS. ONE OFFICIAL WITH THE DEA SAYS
BY DOING THAT, YOU COULD BE
SAVING THE LIFE OF A LOVED ONE. >> >> STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT A
MAJORITY OF PEOPLE THAT USE
PAINKILLERS GET THEM FROM FAMILY
AND FRIENDS. THESE ARE DRUGS THAT COME OUT OF
PEOPLE’S MEDICINE CABINETS AT
HOUSES. >> THAT’S WHY ANOTHER WOMAN SAYS
SHE DROPPED OFF HER PILLS, TO
KEEP THEM AWAY FROM CHILDREN. SINCE 2010, NATIONAL DRUG
TAKEBACK DAY HAS BEEN TWICE A
YEAR. THE NEXT TAKEBACK IN 2018 WILL
BE IN OCTOBER. IN FLOWOOD, EARL ARMS, 16 WA
