Rx Collection Brings in Hundreds
That's a whole lotta drugs potentially off the streets in La Crosse. This week-end's prescription drug collections organized by Onalaska and La Crosse police totalled over six hundred pounds. Much of that, old narcotics. Stuff that people clearly don't want hanging around the medicine cabinet, says La Crosse officer Jon Wenger. He says hundreds came during a three hour period at three different locations on Saturday to drop off their old meds. He's hoping to have similar events in the future. Potentially, drop boxes at area police stations for old meds as well. All the medications collected go to an incinerator in Green Bay.
