A Drug Take Back Day is slated for Saturday September 29 in Texarkana, Arkansas.The event will be going on from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  at the administration building of the Texarkana Arkansas School District located at 3435 Jefferson Avenue. The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department and the D.E.A. is sponsoring the take back activities.

Authorities say you can stop pill abuse and theft by bringing in, potentially dangerous, expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs. It's free, anonymous, with no questions asked. Experts say this is a better way of getting rid of these drugs as opposed to to flushing or throwing them in the garbage.

Last April some 276 tons of unwanted prescription drugs were turned in at over 5.600 sites across the country.
