Lions Sponsor Drug Take Back Day
The Rappahannock Lions Club is sponsoring “National Drug Take Back Day” with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on April 30.
County residents are urged to bring unused or expired drugs to the parking lot at the Rappahannock County CoOp, 12645 Lee Hwy in Washington, From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
“The Lions will be hosting DEA representatives who will be on hand to accept unneeded medicines, no questions asked,” said Fred Stacey, who is coordinating the effort for the Lions. “Unused or expired prescription pharmaceuticals are a public health safety problem. If not properly disposed, drugs found in your medicine cabinet can lead to accidental poisoning, overdose, and abuse. We urge all county residents to take advantage of this free program,” he said.
