Griffin: ‘It’s important that we do our part to keep prescription drugs out of circulation for harmful or illicit use’
LITTLE ROCK – Ahead of Saturday, October 28, being the Drug Enforcement Agency’s National Drug Take Back Day, Attorney General Tim Griffin issued the following statement:
“Tomorrow is National Drug Take Back Day, and I encourage Arkansans across the state to consider whether you and your family have prescription drugs that need to be disposed of. If you do, you should find the drop-off location nearest to you and make a plan to stop by tomorrow.
“Leftover prescription drugs, particularly opioids, can far too easily make it into the hands of children, those struggling with addiction or even criminals. It’s important that we do our part to keep prescription drugs out of circulation for harmful or illicit use.
“I also encourage all Arkansans to sign up for the upcoming Stop Overdose Summit on Wednesday, November 8, at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock. Our summit will provide information and training to equip people to join the effort of eliminating drug overdoses in our state.”
