National Drug Take Back Day

Saturday, April 30th is National Drug Take Back Day and around the country and all over the Front Range there will be events set up for you to safely discard your unused or unwanted medication. KGNU spoke with CU pharmacy professor and Coordinator for the Colorado Consortium for Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention, Dr. Robert Valuck, about National Drug Take Back day and the importance pf proper drug disposal.

“The DEA has been doing this for about 5 or 6 years …. in total they’ve collected around 5 and half million pounds of drugs in these last six years.” – Dr. Rob Valuck
