Google Maps Has Introduced A Feature To Mark Prescription Drug Disposal Places

MTSU offers prescription drug take-back event April 24

In Tuscaloosa County, five drop-off locations will be open Saturday from 10 a.m.to 2 p.m. People can drop off their prescription and over-the-counter medications for free, and officers will properly dispose of them, no questions asked.

As the country suffers from an opioid crisis, communities are doing their part to make sure certain drugs don't make it in the wrong hands.

It's safe. It's confidential.

Google will also promote the DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Day by flagging the event below the search bar on its main page. The program is managed as a partnership between the Wisconsin DOJ, the Drug Enforcement Administration and local law enforcement agencies, and aims to combat illicit recreational use of controlled substances.

It is the fifteenth time in the past seven years that the Abilene Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration have co-sponsored the event to prevent pill abuse and theft, according to a news release from the Abilene Police Department.


Surveys show that a majority of teens who have taken a prescription medication for a non-medical reason said they did so because it was easy to get from their parents' medicine cabinets.

Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of death of Americans under 50.

At the last Take Back Day in Floyd County, about 64 lbs. of prescription drugs were collected.

"This is a crisis that must be addressed from multiple angles". "Ridding your homes of unused prescription medication and unsafe drugs is a simple and important safety measure we can all take". More than half of those are from heroin and prescription opioids. "Yet many people aren't aware of, or can't easily find, prescription drug disposal programs in their communities", Google says.

"Prescription drugs left unattended or forgotten in family medicine cabinets are one of the most accessible gateways to opiate and heroin abuse", a statement on Congressman Joe Kennedy III's website states. CSIP's mission is to promote best practices in the technology and commerce industries and educate consumers about illegal online pharmacies and counterfeit medicines to help keep them safe online.
