National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

It’s that time for spring cleaning…And one local agency is encouraging area residents to clean out their medicine cabinets of those unused and expired prescription drugs. The Agency for Substance Abuse Prevention is sponsoring a National Prescription Drug Take Back Day this Friday from 10:00AM until 2:00PM outside in the parking lot of the Walgreen’s on 800 Quintard. Executive Director Seyram Selase says one of the most important things is to recognize the danger of unused prescriptions in your home. Selase says to remove any identifying labels from the prescription bottle. But, don’t worry…The Anniston Police Department will be disposing of the drugs.
