State Police Collect More Than 600 Pounds of Medication on National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day
The Michigan State Police (MSP) have announced that slightly more than 640 pounds of prescription drugs were collected at MSP posts across the state during the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day held on Saturday, October 26th.
The MSP partnered with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other local law enforcement agencies for National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day to provide a safe, convenient and responsible venue for citizens to dispose of unwanted and unused prescription drugs.
All 29 posts participated in the one-day effort by serving as drop-off points for citizens to discard expired, unused and unwanted medications for proper disposal or destruction. The service was free and anonymous.
