Drug take-back day set for Saturday

The post DRUG TAKE BACK: "Don't become an accidental drug dealer" by not disposing of unused medications properly appeared first on WDEF. "We want to help be a part of the solution". The drop off service is free and anonymous, with no questions asked. The stores are located in Niagara Falls, Amherst, Orchard Park, Buffalo (5), Depew, Olean, Jamestown, Tonawanda, Arcade, Batavia, Dunkirk, Baldwinsville, Syracuse, Greece, Dansville and Bath, N.Y.

The aim is to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

The Barling Police Department said it received more than 200 pounds of unused medication from an event in April.

Several law enforcement agencies are participating in the DEA's "National Drug Take Back Day" where anyone can drop off their unwanted or expired pills. Your old medications can be a lure to criminals looking for drugs to use or sell. "This biannual Prescription Take Back Day is an important reminder to remove unused prescription drugs from homes before a chance of abuse can occur".

Microsoft to keep working with military despite ethics concerns
By working with the military and government, Microsoft can be more directly involved in these ethics conversations, Smith wrote. Amazon founder Jeff Bezos offered a similar statement last week at a conference in San Francisco hosted by Wired Magazine.

The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District of Greater Chicago (MWRD) and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are partnering to collect unwanted drugs on October 27. Personal information will be removed from the containers.

"I don't want to flush them down the toilet".

On a federal level, DEA officials expect on Saturday to top 10 million pounds of prescription drugs collected since the beginning of Drug Take Back Day.
