Unused prescription medications can be turned into the Sunapee Police Departments on April 30th, from 10am-2pm

GOT DRUGS?

You can help dispose of these unused drugs!

Most abused prescription drugs come from family and friends. You could be a drug dealer and not even know it.

Unused or expired prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning, overdoes, and abuse.

Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor's supervision.

The non-medical use of prescription drugs ranks second only to marijuana as the most common form of drug abuse in America.

The majority of teenagers abusing prescription drugs get them from family and friends - and the home medicine cabinet.

Unused prescription drugs thrown in the trash can be retrieved and abused or illegally sold. Unused drugs that are flushed contaminate the water supply. Proper disposal of unused drugs saves lives and protects the environment.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

On Saturday, April 30th, 2011 from 10am - 2pm police departments, including the Sunapee and New London Police will have their doors open for people to turn in these unused drugs with no questions asked.
