When the drug drop-off program was first implemented some time ago, it was supposed to offer a no-questions-asked alternative for disposing unwanted or unused medications, especially antibiotics, heart/BP medications, pain medications, etc., without releasing them into the water treatment system or the area river and creeks. I can't find any reference of that in today's article of the SG. Instead, all of the area police departments and the DEA are expressing faux concern for the "innocents" digging through their home medicine cabinets. I think they're really nosing around the drop-off centers...for what, the off chance they or their canine partners might nab an honest citizen who's trying to do the right thing by discarding a few outdated Vicodins or Fentanyl patches? If you want to participate in this program, my advice is to first dump all of those unwanted drugs into a sandwich baggie and discard the containers at a recycle bin.
