Pills, Drugs, Prescriptions, prescription drugs

Law enforcement agencies across West Virginia will participate in a national event Saturday attempting to get unused prescription drugs out of homes where they could potentially be abused.

The federal Drug Enforcement Agency and Department of Justice sponsor several National Drug Tack-Back days every year. Saturday’s event marks the 11th annual event.

The events aim to provide a safe, convenient and responsible method of disposal while also educating the general public about the potential for their abuse.

Events in West Virginia will take place at several locations from 10 am to 2 pm Saturday. To find a drop off location near you, visit the federal DEA’s website.
