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.
