Police Holding Second Prescription Drug Drop-off

RCMP are asking people to get rid of their unused medications safely. The Mounties along with municipal police services are holding their second National Prescription Drug Drop-Off day on May 10. The RCMP say people should clean out their medicine cabinets and bathroom drawers to get rid of medications. Sgt. Keith MacKinnon says they want reduce access and abuse of prescription drugs.

MacKinnon says they collected roughly two tonnes of pills during last year's inaugural event and they're hoping to build off that success. Drop-off points will be held across the province including Bridgewater at the Bridgewater Mall, in Chester at the Chester Pharmasave, at Kinley's Drug Store in Lunenburg and the RCMP detachment in Yarmouth.
