Did you know the majority of prescription drug abusers report that they obtain their drugs from friends and family, including from the home medicine cabinet? Help fight against the misuse of prescription drugs by dropping off your unused and expired prescriptions to the Hudson Police at Acme grocery store (116 West Streetsboro Street) on Saturday, October 28 between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The Hudson Police Department is participating in the Drug Enforcement Agency's (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. Make sure to mark off your name, RX number, and medication name with a black marker, and seal all bottles in a see-through Ziploc bag. No syringes or liquids of any type will be accepted. This past April, more than 900,386 pounds of prescription drugs were turned in at nearly 5,500 sites operated by the DEA. Overall, in its 12 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in more than 8,103,363 pounds of prescription drugs. If you can't make it Saturday, an unused medications disposal box is always available in the lobby of the Hudson Police Department, 36 S. Oviatt.
