Drug Take Back Set for Saturday

Lynchburg, VA - Police departments across the state want to prevent prescription drug abuse.

Every year, they hold the National Prescription Drug Take Back.

This year's event is set for this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

State police and other agencies want you to bring in your dangerous, expired, or unwanted drugs.

The goal is to get the drugs out of the hands of people who would abuse it, and also out of lakes and streams.

Last year, 742,000 pounds of prescription drugs were turned in.
