Local law enforcement put on Drug Take-Back

  • Local authorities take part in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Sheriff's departments across the area, including the Grand Traverse County Sheriff's Department, set up stations for people to return their drugs.

The prescription drugs will be destroyed or burned by the Drug Enforcement Agency.

Police said the event every year prevents drug abuse and overdose deaths.

Maurette Lewis dropped her pills off at the Waco Police Department late Saturday morning, saying it was time to clear out her medicine cabinet.

The event, which is held twice a year-once in April and once in October-has become an important tool in the fight against the opioid crisis. "Our goal is to take as many of those off the street as we can", Barnes said.


With the help of police, Erie County is urging people to get unwanted medications out of their homes and away from potential drug users.

The sites accept pills, tablets, and patches but not liquids or syringes. "We ask, what can to start the drug abuse conversation and the drug take back certainly starts the conversation", explains Jack.

The San Luis Obispo CHP collected 280 pounds of expired or unused prescription drugs.

"We're just trying to make sure that we provide a safe disposal for those so that those can't get into the hands of drug users and/or criminals", said Sgt. Joel Gaston.

In Michigan, residents also can anonymously surrender their prescription drugs year-round at any MSP post, from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.
