ND Program Destroys 700lbs Of Drugs

Posted: Updated:

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A North Dakota program that collects unused medication to help fight prescription drug abuse has destroyed more than 700 pounds of Oxycontin and other drugs.
    
Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the drugs collected through the Take Back program in the past four months were burned last week.
    
The program was launched about three years ago and has collected almost two tons of unused medication. Disposal containers are located at police departments and sheriff's offices across the state.
    
Saturday is designated as the national prescription drug Take Back Day.
