Do you have leftover unused prescription medication just hanging out in your medicine cabinet?  It's time to bring them to a special place where you can dispose of them properly. More often than not, unused medication ends up in the wrong hands, where it is misused or accidentally ingested.

 

According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 9.7 million people misused prescription pain relievers, 4.9 million people misused prescription stimulants, and 5.9 million people misused prescription tranquilizers or sedatives in 2019. The survey also showed that a majority of misused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. - Nation Survey on Drug Use and Health
