Editorial: Get rid of the danger, clean out your medicine cabinet

>> AS PARENTS, MOST OF US CANNOT
IMAGINE OUR CHILDREN STICKING A
NEEDLE IN THEIR OWN TO GET HIGH. ACCORDING TO THE PARTNERSHIP FOR
DRUG-FREE KIDS, ONE IN FOUR KIDS
HAVE SAID THEY HAD FUSED — HAVE
USED A PRESCRIPTION DRUG IN A
LIFETIME. PRESCRIPTION OPIOIDS ARE READILY
AVAILABLE IN MEDICINE CABINETS,
UP AND DOWN YOUR BLOCK, AND
MAYBE YOUR OWN HOME. THAT IS THE IDEA BEHIND DRUG
TAKE THAT DAY. LAST YEAR, PEOPLE TURNED AND 14
TONS OF EXPIRED OR NO LONGER
NEEDED DRUGS. AS PART OF OUR COMMITMENT TO
COVER THE STATE OF ADDICTION
CRISIS, WE ASKED YOU TO TAKE A
COUPLE OF MINUTES TO CHECK OUT
WHAT IS IN THE MEDICINE CABINETS
OF YOUR HOMES. IF YOU FIND PILLS YOU DON’T
NEED, TAKE THEM TO A DESIGNATED
COLLECTION CENTER, AND THEY WILL
BE EXPOSED OF SAFELY. THEY WILL BE OPEN FROM 10:00
A.M. TO 2:00 P.M. ON SATURDAY,
AND YOU WILL FIND A LIST OF
COLLECTION CENTERS ON A WEBSITE
ON WBALTV.COM, AND ON OUR MOBILE
APP. 80% OF AMERICANS USING HEROIN
RIGHT NOW SAID THEY GOT HOOKED
ON PRESCRIPTION OPIOIDS FIRST. >>
