Get rid of unwanted medicines at Dump the Drugs event

A Dump the Drugs event will be held Saturday, April 27, at seven locations countywide, including Prescott, Prescott Valley, Chino Valley, Cottonwood, Sedona, Camp Verde and Clarkdale. MATForce and area law enforcement are joining with the National Prescription Drug Take-Back Campaign to gather and safely dispose of unwanted prescription and over-the-counter medication.

Properly disposing of unwanted medication keeps potentially dangerous drugs from getting into the wrong hands. Safe disposal also keeps drugs from being improperly disposed of and getting into our water systems.

In the greater Prescott area, prescription and over-the-counter medications can be dropped off between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the Prescott Police Department, 222 S. Marina; Prescott Valley Police Department, 7601 E. Civic Circle; and the Chino Valley Police Department, 1020 W. Palomino Road. For more information, call 708-0100 or visit matforce.org.

You can also donate your unwanted and expired drugs to Drs. Without Borders.They can use the expired drugs because these country's they serve have no access to the kinds of drugs we have here. It's better to have and expired drug then none at all.you can go to their web sight and get the info on shipping. @Bad Pharma if you keep your antibiotics and then take them say for a cold which is a viral infection not a bacterial infection you are setting your self up for big problems.Have you ever heard of super bugs that are anti Biotic resistant well this is the reason why they exist people like you who think they know more then their Drs. That cold will still take seven days to go away whether you take them or not and it is dangerous if you do. So you might want to stop doing this. Instead finish all of the antibiotic for the conditions it was prescribed for by your Dr.just like the label on the bottle states to keep from having a rebound bacterial infection that going to be harder to get rid of because its becoming resistant! Give it a try!

So, how are people supposed to get to the Prescott PD? The ENTIRE downtown is blocked off for the bike race.
Pretty poor planning on someone's part.
Maybe the race functions need to be moved to the rodeo grounds.

Unwanted prescriptions. Please don't flush them. Don't let us find out that our water is contaminated and needs some expensive public works to keep us all from taking someone's medication.

The reality is that I will keep any narcotic or common anti-biotic. Sometime you can't get an appointment fast enough.

Although flushing of marijuana would not likely cause any public health danger. That is unless you got caught. Otherwise, flush away, or get a hold of me or the Rev for proper disposal.

Although Rev is not, don't be fooled, the police can lie. They don't have to tell you they are law enforcement. And until this becomes legal weed, don't trust. Busting pot is way easier and more rewarding than doing the hard work. But the hard work can lead to where local enforcement leadership knows will stir the state or federal level political backlash to protect the enterprises and politicians it buys. We ain't talking about weed, although some of that too. I doubt any city police chief would admit it, except in confidence. It's hard work keeping your guys from stumbling upon that reality. You have to pay more for a chief, if the said problem is local politicians (theoretically).

Should you have medical cannabis or regular cannabis you are seeking safe disposal of my hands are the right hands. Please meet me at [removed by moderator for noncompliance] around 5ish. You will know me by my large bag of funions. I am not a cop. I would have to tell you if I was a cop. That is law. (This was sarcasm, poorly done and obvious, but still.)
