National Prescription Drug Take-Back Event

The Davis Police Department, in cooperation with the US Drug Enforcement Administration, are taking back unused and unwanted prescription medication (pill form only, no liquids accepted).
September 27, 2014 from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm
The Davis Police Department—2600 5th St.
Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse.
Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.
The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends – and the home medicine cabinet.
Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.
