Local police agencies are partnering with EPIC (Early prevention impacts communities) to allow YOU to bring in your unused pain medicines and other pills anonymously – no questions asked. Cape Police will be near the Steak and Shake location at West Park Mall and Jackson PD will be at the police and fire headquarters this Saturday the 26th from 10am til 2pm. EPIC Project Coordinator Jami Obermann tells KZIM KSIM prescription drug abuse is becoming a major issue for people of all ages.
Don’t throw old drugs in the trash or flush them down the toilet. The collected pills will be disposed of properly. Last year over 100 people dropped off over 1 thousand pounds of unwanted prescription medicines.
