The Cole County Sheriff’s Department and the Taos Water District #4 is sponsoring a Drug Take Back Event on October 28th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. This will be at the Taos Water District #4 office located at 7712 Route M, Taos, MO.
Why are we doing this? A study from 2013 shows kids from the age of 12-17 abuse prescription drugs more than ecstasy, heroin, crack/cocaine and methamphetamines combined. Almost one in every four teens in America say they have misused or abused a prescription drug.
All of us have unused or unwanted prescription medication. Proper disposal of these medications will prevent possible misuse and will also keep them from harming the environment in which we live.
