This Saturday is the 18th National Prescription Take Back Day, an event aimed at ridding homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.
This year, the Drug Enforcement Administration is doing something a little different as DEA Resident Agent in Charge Edward Talbot says they will also be accepting vaping devices and cartridges.
“It is important to note that devices containing lithium-ion batteries can not be accepted and the batteries must be removed before drop off. Drop off locations for vaping devices, cartridges and prescription drugs are as follows: Agana Shopping Center, Kmart, Andersen Air Force base exchange and the Naval Base Guam Exchange. Last April, Guam, and CNMI residents turned in 675 pounds of prescription drugs,” Talbot said.
