Today is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Got my days mixed up and posted “Mothers’ Day” on the 24th, not the 30th. So here is something unrelated to ritual abuse but useful.

April 30 is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day all around the country. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. you can safely dispose of your expired or no longer needed medicines at Police Department District Stations – without filling out paperwork! It’s free and anonymous, no questions asked. I guess that means you can return street drugs, too.

There are some things that can’t be accepted: thermometers, needles/sharps, ointments, liquids, inhalers/aerosols, bulk medications, powdered medications, and hydrogen peroxide.

To find a collection site go to  and enter your zip code or city.

On all other days, you can bring them to certain pharmacies in your area. Enter your zip code at

I may have imagined this, but as I recall, they should be placed in ziplock bag and put in a drop box at the police station.
