Kennesaw Police host Drug Take-Back Day

The 13th National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is Saturday, April 29 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

In 2016 Milford Police Department collected over 1000 pounds of prescription medication at Drug Take Back events. With the exception of "sharps", any and all prescriptions drugs will be accepted, no questions asked, stated an update to the South Orange Police Department's Facebook page. Local residents can bring prescriptions to the CVS Pharmacy, located at 2782 Cobb Parkway in Kennesaw.

Windsor County Prevention Partners coordinator, Courtney Hillhouse states that, "Nearly 70 percent of people age 12 and older who abused prescription painkillers got them from friends or relatives, many times right from the medicine cabinet". Rates of prescription drug abuse in the USA are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.
