President Trump calls upon all Americans to help fight the opioid epidemic and designates Saturday as National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
The president urged Americans to clean out their medicine cabinets– saying prevention begins at home, in his weekly address.
“Most Americans who abuse prescription drugs get them from someone else’s leftover prescriptions. In fact, misusing prescription opioids can be a gateway to deadly heroin addiction or the unsuspecting use of fentanyl-laced drugs.”
More than 900,000 pounds of unneeded or expired drugs were turned in during last October’s National Take Back Day.
