Enough Scripts to Fill a Decent-Sized Swimming Pool Turned In
Big time clean out of medicine cabinets throughout Wisconsin this spring. The state attorney general's office says the state's prescription drug "Take Back Day" last month brought in more than 23 tons worth of unwanted, expired or unused prescription drugs dropped off at nearly 180 collection sites statewide. That's about a tenth of an ounce of prescription drugs for every man, woman and child in the state. That's just the drugs that were handed in. The 23 tons was a one day take. Last year, the state collected 30 tons over two days in the spring and the fall.
