National Drug Take-Back Days
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has been coordinating National Drug Take-Back Days for a few years. According to the DEA, over 3.5 million pounds of prescription medications have been removed out of circulation in their six Take-Back events, including their latest one held in April 2013. State, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies partner with the DEA to make this a successful event.
