Each year thousands of Americans die from prescription drug abuse and the numbers have risen steadily since the early 1970s. This weekend the Marion County Sheriff’s Office is teaming up with the Drug Enforcement Administration for National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. The drop off event will be held from 10am-2pm Saturday and all area residents are encouraged to stop by with their expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
