“Drug Take Back” Event Collects Hundreds of Lbs of Expired Meds

Good afternoon –

I know that many of you were interested in last weekend’s ‘Prescription Drug Take Back Day’ (an opportunity to bring expired medications to the Redwood City Police Department for disposal ). I wanted to follow up to let you know that this event was a huge success, with over 350 pounds of prescription medications collected and safely removed from circulation.

This is an important public safety measure, and helps to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding residents’ homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. The event was put on by the Stanford Pain Management Center, the Redwood City Police Department, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Thank you to those of you who participated!
