Prescription Drug Drop-Off Day was a huge success. This past Saturday, police and medical officials worked to help residents dispose unused and unwanted medications. At 53 OPP locations across Ontario, police received 308 kilograms of prescription medications from just over 700 citizens. Most of the drugs collected included opiates, amphetamines and barbituates. The abuse of prescription medications can lead to incidents of overdose and in some cases, death. Residents are urged to drop off any unused or expired prescription medications at their local pharmacies at any time. To keep prescription medications from our water sources, medications should never be flushed down toilets or drains.
