How can you join in the fight against prescription drug abuse?

Dozens of local agencies and organizations are participating in National Prescription Drug Take Back Day Saturday.

"We think it's so important that people give us their medications so they don't get in the hands of children or they don't get in the hands of someone who might abuse them and we don't want to pollute our local streams of waters and lakes by people flushing them down the toilet".

Seven locations will be open across the Mississippi Coast on Saturday to take unused or unwanted prescription drugs off the street during the DEA's National Drug Take Back Day.
