This Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day and various agencies in western Kentucky and southern Indiana are taking part.  Take Back Day was designed to keep unused prescription medications out of the wrong hands and drug enforcement agencies around the country are joining forces to allow folks to surrender their unused prescriptions and discard them in safe and effective ways.

I, for instance, went to Kenya last year and, before we left, we got prescriptions for anti-malarial medications.  I took all of mine, but Kevin couldn't tolerate the side effects. It made him really nauseous.  So, he stopped taking it two days into our tip and we still have that prescription in our medicine cabinet. It needs to go, but we just didn't know where to take it.  We do now.

National Take Back Day is set for Saturday, April 30th from 10am to 2pm CST.  As of the publication date of this story, there are thirteen different sites here in the tristate to surrender your medication.
