Last April, the event collected over 14,000 pounds of unwanted or expired medications This completely confidential program will allow adult family members to visit any listed location, where law enforcement officers will collect and hold all medications.

After the medications are collected, they will be weighed by the Drug Enforcement Administration before they are destroyed.
