The opioid drug crisis - now a "public health emergency" by order of the president - is testament to how hard this work is.

The event will be held at Southgate Mall from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. "And it's an opportunity for the citizens of DE to clean out their medicine cabinets, get rid of prescription or non-prescription drugs, even pet medication (s) they accept, to get it away from your home", said Leitzinger. The president's national health emergency declaration opens certain federal funds to drug treatment groups, among other things. Liquids and needles will not be accepted.

Seven police departments in McLean County will be acception unused prescription drugs on Saturday.

In partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration, troopers will collect expired and unused pills so they can be destroyed.

India's ruling party to observe November 8 as "anti-black money" day
The Congress today dubbed as a "crude joke" with the people the BJP's plan to observe November 8 as "anti-blackmoney day" and alleged that it is an attempt to divert public attention from the government's "failures" and "betrayal".

The DEA says the effort helps prevent prescription drugs from getting into the wrong hands, or into rivers and streams after improper disposal.

The program's campaign material states, "Most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends".

This initiative is a vital public safety and public health issue.

During its 13th National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day in April 2017, the DEA and more than 4,200 of its national, tribal, and community law enforcement partners collected 900,000 pounds (450 tons) of unwanted prescription drugs at nearly 5,500 collection sites. Overall, in its 13 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in over 8.1 million pounds-more than 4,050 tons-of pills.
