Drug take-back yields 71 pounds


May 27, 2014
FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. — On April 26, the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, with the assistance of CVS Pharmacy, participated in the eighth National Prescription Take-Back Initiative.

"We recovered 71 pounds of expired, outdated or unused prescription medications from Forsyth County residents using this event on this specific day," said Deputy Doug Rainwater, a spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office.

This was in addition to the prescription drug locker located at the South Precinct, 2985 Ronald Reagan Boulevard, behind South Forsyth High School.

The prescription drug locker is for the disposal of prescription medications and can be accessed Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m.

Statewide, the DEA's event turned in 10,020 pounds of unwanted or expired medications for safe and proper disposal at sites set up throughout the state. This amount exceeded the previous statewide total collected during the Oct. 26, 2013 take-back event, which yielded 8,283 pounds.
