May 16th-Department of Justice Prescription Drug Take Back Day

WI DOJOn May 16, 2015, WI DOJ will coordinate a Prescription Drug Take Back initiative throughout Wisconsin. Attorney General Brad Schimel’s initiative is a continuation of the collaborative efforts previously conducted by the DEA with state and local law enforcement agencies. The goal is to provide a safe, convenient and responsible means of disposal of prescription medications, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of these medications. Unused prescription medications in homes create a public health and safety concern because they can be accidentally ingested, stolen, misused and abused.
