Law enforcement works to 'dry up supply' of loose prescription drugs with take back day

The Acadiana Advocate - In hopes of lessening future drug abuse, the Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office participated in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s 17th nationwide prescription drug take back day Saturday, collecting unused prescription drugs from the community to safely dispose them.

About 3,615 pounds of prescription drugs were collected in Louisiana during the October take back day, according to a DEA news release.
