               National Drug Take Back set for Saturday        The take back is set for Saturday April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m

MPD teamed up with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other local law enforcement agencies to put on their bi-annual Drug Take-Back.

During last fall's take-back day, ME officials collected 41,700 pounds of medications at 157 drop-off sites, more than any other New England state, according to the DEA.

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day provides a safe, convenient way to get rid of prescription drugs while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

There were drop off spots across the Coastal Bend.

"Since we created those drop boxes for people to come in", he said.

Police encourage people to take advantage of these drug take-backs so unused medications don't end up in the wrong hands.

This should make it simple for users sharing memories of their past weekend's adventures, their fantastic global trip, and more. Earlier this month , TechCrunch urged Instagram to build its own version of Facebook's "Download Your Information" tool.

"They are even turning in pet medications", said Leslie Knight, a Maine Medical Center registered nurse who was there with about a half-dozen of her nursing colleagues.

"They don't ask any questions, we don't ask any questions", he said.

"This is actually spearheaded by Centra Wellness, they're pretty much behind it as part of a DEA program", he said.

The Charleston Police Department was hoping to beat last year's total of 500 pounds of unused drugs collected. Each time it was full with about 13 to 14 pounds of medication. The box is similar to the Red Med Boxes.

The event kicks off from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. right here at KIII Studios located at 5002 SPID.
