It’s National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
Spring is a great time to clean out your medicine cabinet. Got drugs? You can drop them off tomorrow (4/30) from 10 AM - 2 PM at the Michigan State Police Lapeer Post on M-24 or the Flint Post on Corunna Road or click here for a collection site near you. Properly disposing of unwanted or expired medicine protects your family and the environment. Medicines in the home are a leading cause of accidental poisoning and flushed or trashed medicines can end up polluting our water. Rates of prescription drug abuse are alarmingly high and over half of teens abusing medicines get them from the home medicine cabinet, a family member or a friend often without their knowledge.
