Medication Disposal

 Out of  date or unused drugs can be a health risk for toddlers, teens and pets. About 50,000 children visit the  ER each year from taking drugs in their reach. They can also be misused.  More than 70% of people who misuse prescription drugs get them from friends or family. Over 30,000 overdose deaths each year are  because of this.
