People can dispose of prescription drugs at Indiana State Police posts Saturday

Prescription drugs that make their way to the wrong hands could lead to disastrous situations.

Saturday, Oct. 27, is the latest Take-Back Day, according to the program's sponsor, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Rochester - Fulton County Sheriff's Department - 200 E. 8th St.

More than 53 pounds of un-used medications were collected and will be incinerated by law enforcement.

Police say they wanted to prevent drugs from being misused, stolen or mixed up with other drugs people are now taking. Help put a stop to that this Saturday with the annual Drug Take Back Day. Lane said he would like to see Arkansas break its own record. "We will take the medication from you, and then with our partners we will be there to take care of that for you", said Muskingum County Sheriff, Matt Lutz. The last collection in April brought in 949,046 lbs.

HealthSource is partnering with the DEA, rewarding those who bring unused prescriptions to any of the collection sites with Wellness Vouchers, which can be used on nutritional supplements and wellness treatments created to relieve back and neck pain.

"The ultimate goal would be to surpass what we took in the previous take back", she said.

As most pet parents know, our pets are generally notorious for getting into just about everything and eating anything they deem as food.

The aim is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.
