The efforts of local drug enforcement agencies are paying dividends, with another drug take-back day this past weekend. Max Nofziger is captain of the Multi Area Narcotics Task Force, and reports over 411 pounds of outdated and un-used medication was dropped-off in the six county area that day. Putnam County had the highest total at over 164 pounds.
Captain Nofziger reports that medication will now be disposed-of safely.
It is not a good idea to dispose of medication by flushing it down the toilet; because it then dissolves into the water supply.
