Miami Police Want Your Old Drugs, Please
Are loads of half-empty hydrocodone bottles clogging up your medicine cabinet? Do you still have that Xanax prescription in your nightstand even though you stopped taking it because you swore it made your crazier? Do you just have so many drugs you don't even know what to do with them?
Well, the DEA and local police departments would like to take them off your hands.
Several local departments will be taking part in the DEA's National Take Back Initiative Collection day. Select Miami, Miami-Dade, Aventura, Medley, and Miami Gardens police stations will be waiting around on Saturday, April 28, hoping that you'll stop by and drop off your leftover stash of prescription medications. You can find a list of collection sites here.
Don't worry, there are no questions asked. However, non-prescription drugs will not be collected. So, you know, don't walk into a police station with a brick of coke.
This will be the third year of the DEA's Take Back Day, and so far 500 tons of old pills have been rounded up nationally.
