If you have some unused or expired prescription medication you would like to properly get rid off, there will be an opportunity on Saturday.
As part of the DEA's National Drug Take Back Initiative, Metro Police and other partners are collecting prescription medications on Sat., Oct. 22 from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. at the following Smith's locations:
- 9750 S. Maryland Parkway, Las Vegas
- 2211 North Rampart, Las Vegas
- 850 S. Rancho, Las Vegas
- 6130 W. Tropicana, Las Vegas
(Prescriptions can be left in their containers, just black out the patient information)
"We encourage all residents to look through their medicine cabinets and join us to safely dispose of any old or unneeded prescription and over-the-counter medications," said Jamie Ross, executive director of the PACT Coalition. "We want to keep these medications from being misused, especially by our young people.”
