CRIME
               National Drug Take Back set for Saturday        The take back is set for Saturday April 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m

"It's hard to say you're wasting something or getting rid of something that you might use one time, but in the end it's probably not safe anymore", explains Mahn.

Saturday, April 28, has been designated National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The objective is to get people to turn in their unused or old prescription drugs.

On Staten Island, the locations accepting drugs are at the 120th Precinct stationhouse in St. George, the 122nd Precinct stationhouse in New Dorp, and the 123rd Precinct stationhouse in Tottenville. It forms one strand in a web of growing national strategies aimed at combating what is widely considered to be the greatest drug crisis in USA history, driven by opioid abuse, a deadly habit that claimed more than 64,000 lives previous year. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the USA are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.

These can be brought to designated collection sites around the country, including more than 30 locations here in Rhode Island. DEA officials said it is an opportunity to prevent drug addiction and overdose that's affecting over six million Americans.

"Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands", Sanders notes.

Since 2014, Reach Out and Partners for Innovative Communities (PIC) have been working with local police departments in the Inland Empire to set up drug take back boxes at local police stations. "It's part of DEA's effort to educate", Simmons said.

Can't go to Take Back Day?

There are two dozen disposal sites in the Buffalo area that will be open from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m.no questions asked.
