American's 12 to 17 years old made prescription drugs the number one substance of abuse for their age group, and much of that supply is unwittingly coming from the medicine cabinets of their parents, grandparents, and friends. More and more adults recognize the need to remove these substances from the home and legally and safely turn them in for proper disposal.
Please wear a mask and remain 6 feet apart from others when visiting pharmacies.
