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.
