Numbers Released On Drug Take Back Event

Collected Drugs Kept Out of Water SupplyGRANTS PASS, Ore. — 216 pounds of prescription drugs are now out of homes and won’t fall into the wrong hands.

The Grants Pass Department of Public Safety says it brought in the drugs during its Drug Take Back Event over the weekend.

There are a couple of goals of the event: to keep the drugs out of our local water system and to keep the drug away from those who would abuse them.

If you missed the event, you can drop of unused or expired prescription drugs at drug drop boxes at the Grants Pass Department of Public Safety or at the Medford Police Department.
