  • MTSU offers prescription drug take-back event April 24

The Cedar Falls Police Department will once again participate in a national effort to remove potentially unsafe drugs from homes.

Martella's Pharmacy in Windber, Boswell Prescription Center in Boswell and Penn Laurel Pharmacy in Central City will accept unwanted prescription drugs from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.

Residents are welcome to drop off their no-longer-needed prescription drugs, which will be safely disposed of. You will not be required to give your name or sign any forms. The study showed that a majority of abused prescription drugs were obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet. This service is free and anonymous, as no questions will be asked. It's important to get rid of unused prescriptions to prevent them from falling into the wrong hands.

The event is being held in conjunction with National Prescription Take Back Day.

Was Barbara Bush partially to blame for Donald Trump's presidency?
About 200 people gathered on a ME beach on Sunday to remember Barbara Bush , who with her husband, former President George H.W. But such moments do exist-remember when five living former Presidents came together for hurricane relief last October ?

It marks the first of two National Drug Take Back Days scheduled for this year and, for Cecil County, it is another opportunity to produce drop-off figures that are competitive with some recent notable numbers here.

Officials also point out that opioid abuse is at epidemic levels in the USA and a top public health concern. The CDC reports that one person dies every 19 minutes from a drug overdose in the USA through prescription pain killers. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines - flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash - pose potential safety and health hazards.

"Remember that the abuse of prescription medication is risky and many times leads to other more serious addictions such as heroin addiction".
