Drop your prescription drugs off with no questions asked at these locations

He figures more than a 1,000 pounds of unwanted or expired prescription drugs will be taken to his police department this year alone, including a couple of hundred pounds on Saturday.

Captain Tommy Cox is in charge of the LPD's take-back events and said that the event has been successful in the past.

We join Mike Dennis, executive director of the Tri-County Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, in encouraging participation in Saturday's Take Back Day.

The goal of the event organized by the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration is to get unused prescription medications out of homes so they can't contribute to abuse. [We have] no problem with that.

The Muskegon Heights Police Department noted that between 8 a.m. and noon, it will take back both prescription drugs and recreational drugs with no questions asked. Putting medications in the trash is not proper disposal, and flushing medications down the toilet can also create poor effects on public health and the environment.

"You hear many times, people have knee surgeries and things like that and they're issued several weeks of opioids and they don't use them and they want to get rid of them".

Kaepernick said he did not stand for the national anthem because he believes there is inequality and police brutality in America. Because he didn't receive the formal invitation, it seems Kaepernick opted not to attend, though that is not certain.

Medications may be returned in the original bottle or in any other container for increased privacy and will be properly destroyed by law enforcement officials.

This Saturday, people can clean out their medicine cabinets and drop off unused or expired drugs at the JPD headquarters at 1651 Atwood Avenue.

A number of local law enforcement agencies will take part in the national movement and take back potentially risky expired, unused and unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs Saturday.

If you don't see a location near you, you can check the Drug Enforcement Administration's website for other options.

The Deputy Chief also noted that "the DEA's Take Back Day provides an opportunity for Americans to prevent drug addition and overdose deaths".
