Multiple police agencies in St. Mary Parish are taking part in the National Take-Back Initiative this weekend. You can bring unused medications from your home to disposed of properly. According to a national survey on drug use and health twice as many Americans abuse prescription drugs than those who use heroin, cocaine, inhalants and hallucinogens combined and those people obtain them from friends or relatives.

The Take Back Initiative takes place this Saturday, September 26 from 10:00am until 2:00pm at:

  • Rite Aid in Bayou Vista
  • Walgreen's on Main Street in Franklin
  • Walmart in Morgan City
  • Walgreen's in Morgan City
  • Morgan City Police Station on Second Street

You can bring prescription medications for disposal but syringes and injectables will not be accepted.
