The Pennsylvania State Police will accept unwanted, expired and unused prescription drugs Saturday, April 26th, as part of National Prescription Drug take-back day. Take-back day is a National Initiative, conducted in partnership with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), aimed at encouraging the public to dispose of expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs that are prone to abuse and theft. The drugs can  be handed in, no questions asked at select State Police barracks. During the seventh national prescription drug take-back day last october, Pennsylvanians turned in 38,196 pounds of expired and unwanted medications for disposal at the 418 take-back sites within Pennsylvania.
