Are you concerned about safe disposal of expired medications?  Do you have medications you are no longer using?  There is a better alternative than flushing them away.

This coming Saturday, October 22nd, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) is sponsoring a national “take back” day.  The DEA, in conjunction with local law enforcement, will be accepting any medications you no longer want.

Although there is a lot of conflicting research on whether flushing drugs is harmful, or not, clearly giving them to officials is a logical choice for safe disposal.
