Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day

Austin

 AUSTIN (KXAN) — Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day and many police departments, pharmacies and other places are asking people to empty out their medicine cabinets of unused pills that others could abuse. 

People poking around in your medicine cabinet may happen more often than you realize. 

It’s become common enough prescription pain medicine is now on the list of items realtors ask people to remove before an open house because they are an easy target for addicts.
