DEA Sponsors Prescription Drug Take Back Day

photo (21)SPRINGFIELD (WGGB) – If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to get rid of those old prescription drugs, then today was the day.

The Drug Enforcement Agency sponsored a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

The DEA hoped to use the event to educate people on the dangers of keeping and using expired medications, as well as a way to offer a safe place for people to get rid of those medications — no questions asked.

Local police departments sponsored the event from 10am to 2pm today. For a list of drop off points near you, just visit the DEA’s website.
