The 14th National "Drug Take Back Day" in 2017 removed TONS of unwanted prescription medications, illegal drugs, and expired drugs out of homes and neighborhoods throughout Florida. The totals for 2017 are astounding, with more than THIRTEEN TONS of unwanted medications turned in by responsible citizens, at 155 local collection sites throughout Florida.
