Drug take-back program gathers old meds

GLASGOW — The Glasgow Police Department and the Barren-Hart-Metcalfe Kentucky Agency for Substance Abuse Policy Coalition teamed up to participate in a nationwide drug take-back day Saturday at Walmart Supercenter in Glasgow.

Booths were at two store entrances from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with receptacles where people could properly dispose of their expired or unneeded medications. Drop-off boxes purchased through grant funds are housed at the Glasgow, Cave City and Horse Cave police departments and Barren, Hart and Metcalfe counties sheriff’s offices year-round.

The event and ongoing effort are part of a program administered through the federal Drug Enforcement Agency.
