Prescription program collects 70-plus pounds

MOORHEAD – The Prescription Take Back Program conducted by the Moorhead Police Department, Drug Enforcement Administration and Moorhead Walgreens on Sept. 29 yielded more than 70 pounds of prescription medication to be properly destroyed.

The program addresses a vital public safety and public health issue, police said in a news release. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse.
