(Deming) -- Local law enforcement and other service providers are participating Saturday in a nationwide Drug Enforcement Administration initiative to get outdated
prescription drugs out of homes.
Officials say unused prescription drugs often become part of the illegal substance abuse problem in a community.
Many people are concerned about the best way to dispose of unused and outdated prescription drugs... and since most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends, people are urged to dispose of their unwanted medications before they unwittingly become a drug provider.
The location for this Saturday's D-E-A "take back" initiative will be Wal-Mart, and drop-off boxes
will be set up from 10 a-m to 2 p-m.
Residents are asked to drop off their unused, unwanted and expired prescription drugs -- no questions asked. They are asking you to place any liquid medications in a sealed container and not to bring needles or syringes.
