How many times have you looked in your cabinets, grabbed something like cough syrup or aspirin and check the expiration date, only to find that the cough syrup or aspirin you wanted to take has long past outlived it's usefulness.

Now think about the prescription medicines that you may have that you no longer need or that has long expired. It would be a good idea to get these medicines out of the house.

Well, according to the Michigan State Police website, it's National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day this Saturday and it's one of two events they do every year with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other law enforcement agencies.

The reason for these special days and events is to help decrease the possibility of opioid and prescription drug abuse, accidental poisonings and overdoses. Simply look through your cabinets, grab the meds you no longer want or need and take them to one of the 30 participating MSP posts this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

All medicines accepted will be destroyed with no questions asked.
