Drug Take Back events are April 28th

The Daily News - Saturday is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, and Attorney General Jeff Landry is encouraging Louisiana residents to participate in the day’s numerous events around the State.

“More than half of the patients prescribed opioid painkillers have or expect to have extra pills left over, and one-fifth of those individuals share their pills with a friend or family member,” Landry said. “This is a problem of epidemic proportions, and we want to do all we legally can to end it.”
