We have all been there. We open up our medicine cabinet to find cobwebs and medications that expired when we were like, 12 years old. You may be tempted to just toss them in your bathroom trash can or down the sink drain… More often than not, the end result of improper disposal is damage to our environment, drug diversion, or drug abuse by others.
Not too many years ago, someone from my past lost their life to a prescription drug overdose. While I didn’t know them too well, it certainly put a lot of things into perspective. When I saw this opportunity to share Drug Take Back Day, I knew I had to speak up. Not just for them, but their family and our community as a whole. I urge you to do the same. A simple action like proper disposal can save a life.
