file1321340932141New Jersey hosted another successful drug disposal day this weekend. In partnership with the DEA, this was the 10th National Prescription Drug Take-Back day.

Prescription drug abuse currently affects millions of Americans. Many of those who abuse these drugs get them from a family member or friend’s medicine cabinet. The government urges anyone who has unused prescription medication to dispose of it properly, like at one of these drug take-back locations. Flushing the medication down the toilet can pose health and environmental risks, and throwing it away in the garbage can cause it to get into the wrong hands.
