The United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is sponsoring  a third National Take Back Initiative for unwanted and unused prescription drugs on October 29, 2011 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.  The DEA reports that over 309 tons of drugs were turned in during the last two events.  Prescription drug abuse continues to be a serious health issue among Americans.  Removing expired and/or no longer needed drugs from the home can assist in curtailing illegal and dangerous drug diversion, as well as ensure these drugs are not flushed into our waters.   Please visit: http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/drug_disposal/takeback/index.html  for more information.
