Kilmartin, DEA looking for expired prescriptions

Posted 10/21/13

PROVIDENCE – Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin joined the Drug Enforcement Administration and local and state law-enforcement agencies in announcing the next statewide Prescription Drug Take Back Day, scheduled for Oct. 26th.

The public can drop off prescription drugs at one of the more than 28 locations statewide. The event is free and anonymous. In addition to the drop-off locations on Oct. 26, many police departments accept expired prescription medications year-round. The public should contact their local police department to see if this program is available in their city or town.

Citing a Center for Disease Control study, Kilmartin said that more Americans now die from painkillers than from heroin and cocaine combined, and since 2008, prescription-drug-induced deaths have outstripped those from automobile accidents.

The list of participating locations is attached or can be found by visiting www.riag.ri.gov or www.dea.gov. •
