DEA Will Be Happy To Take Your Old Drugs Off Your Hands This Saturday

Last September’s first-ever National Take-Back Day, in which the DEA and other law enforcement agencies operate stations for people with old prescription drugs to dispose of them safely, was apparently enough of a success that the agency decided to not even wait a full year to try it again. That’s right, it’s time to bust out your National Take-Back Day decorations, along with your old Vicodin, Oxycontin and Cipro!

On Saturday, April 30, between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., you can take your old and unwanted (at least by you) prescription drugs to any of 4,700 approved drop-off sites — including many police stations, fire houses, hospitals, and churches, around the country.

But please make sure that box into which you’re depositing your drugs is actually on this list because otherwise it’s probably just some enterprising drug dealers trying to profit off your pills.
