As with previous Take-Back events, a site will be set at the Pasadena Police Department so local residents can return their unwanted, unneeded, or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal.The National Prescription Drug Take-Back addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Many Americans are not aware that medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.Studies show that many abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, many Americans do not know how to properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away – both potential safety and health hazards.For additional information, contact Jason Clawson, Special Enforcement Section at (626) 744-3981 or [email protected] Police Department, 207 Garfield Ave, Pasadena, (626) 744-4501 or visit www.ci.pasadena.ca.us/police.
