Pasco PD & Walmart Team for National Drug Take Back Day
National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is set for Saturday, October 24th.
Intra-venous solutions, inhalers, syringes, chemotherapy medications, vaping devices that have batteries that cannot be removed, or medical waste WILL NOT BE accepted due to potential hazard posed by blood-borne pathogens. We will be in front of Walmart from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM. We hope to see you there!
Unused or expired medications can lead to accidental poisoning, misuse, as well as overdose. More than 70-thousand people died as a result of an overdose last year. Currently, there are more than 2-million people abusing opioids in the nation. Most abused prescription drugs are obtained from friends and family.
