On October 28, 2017 the National Prescription Drug Take Back will take place.  This is an event that allows the public to dispose of any unwanted or non-needed medications that they have accumulated.  The event will be held from 10 am to 2 pm across the United States.  Last year, WV had a tremendous turnout and those drug were destroyed in an environmentally friendly manner and most of all prevented them from being diverted into the illicit drug market.
