Feds collect unused medications
If you have unused medications, federal officials are taking them back on Saturday. The service is free and anonymous and aimed at preventing abuse.
Last September, 242,000 pounds of prescription drugs were turned in during the first ever National Take Back Day.
DEA officials say meds that sit unused in home cabinets are highly susceptible to being abused or misused.
