Residents Leave 108 Pounds of Drugs During Farmington Hills Collection

In one day, the nationwide event brings in more than 740,000 pounds of prescription medicines.

Area residents left 108 pounds of prescription drugs at the Farmington Hills Police Department on April 27, as part of a Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

Held in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the event allows people to safely and anonymously remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from their homes. The drop off and pick up of prescription drugs was supervised by officials from both the DEA and the Police Department.

In all, 742,497 pounds of medications were collected nationwide, and 11,593 pounds of prescription drugs were turned over to law enforcement personnel at 197 sites throughout the State of Michigan.

I don't think I would write that the drugs were given anonymously when all of the labels with their names are still on the bottles.
