drugs1 DEA announces prescription "take back" program

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration has announced a nationwide prescription drug “take-back” initiative aimed at preventing pill abuse and theft.
DEA will be collecting unused, expired and unwanted prescription drugs at sites around the country on Sept. 25. The pills will later be destroyed.
Steve Derr, special agent in charge of the DEA for New England, said the free and anonymous program is an opportunity to get rid of unwanted medications before they can be abused, cause an accidental overdose or hurt the environment.
