I didn't realize how big of an issue drugs really were until after my mom passed and one of her nurses came by to make sure I flushed her remaining pills down the toilet. So I can understand why the LCPD is doing a take-back campaign on any prescription medicine.

This Saturday, from 10:00am-2:00pm at the Lake Charles Civic Center near Gill street, they will be accepting any expired or unneeded medicine you may have for proper disposal. However, they are not allowed to accept sharps, liquids, or inhalers. There will also be a drive-through available for your convenience.

If you would like more information, contact Lieutenant Craig Wright at 337-491-1320.
