A federal prosecutor and a West Virginia sheriff's office are promoting awareness of a prescription drug collection effort set for this weekend.
The goal is to spread the word about West Virginia's participation in Saturday's prescription drug collection effort. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and other agencies will be collecting expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs at several designated drop-off sites throughout the state.
Past take-back events have collected more than 13 tons of unwanted prescription drugs in West Virginia and more than 1,700 tons nationwide.
