The US Drug Enforcement Agency and the Pella Police Department are hosting a prescription drug take back today at the Pella Wal Mart from 10am to 2pm. Lt. Shane Cox says that he was originally contacted by the Wal Mart pharmacy about arranging this biannual event. He adds any unused, or unwanted prescription medications can be turned in, regardless of the name on the label, making it a great opportunity to empty the cupboards of a loved one who has passed away. Cox ends by saying that you should never dump these medicines down the drain, or leave them out where children could abuse them.
