BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Police nationwide are taking back your prescription drugs this weekend, with no question asked.
Bowling Green police say turning in your drugs will actually help keep you safer. They say Saturday's drug take back will help prevent prescription pill abuse, as well as crime in the city.
According to police, almost twice as many Americans currently abuse prescription drugs, which is more than people abusing cocaine, heroin and other inhalants combined. That's why police are urging you to turn in unused or unwanted drugs Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Wood County Hospital.
Major Tony Hetrick says many people don't realize having large amounts of pills in their homes makes them a target.
"You don't want your children to get in there, or anybody break into your house. We've had prescription medication stolen from houses during burglaries," said Hetrick.
Since prescription pills are not easy to get, police say prices have increased with the demand.
"OxyContin, Oxycodone and Hydrocodone abuse, those prescription pills are still out there, but the prices of those things have gone through the roof," said Hetrick.
Last year, police seized 70 pounds of medication.
"That's quite a bit, considering one month's supply is just a couple of grams," explained Hetrick.
Turning in those couple of grams can make all the difference in preventing pill theft and abuse.
