Last October, Americans turned in 377,080 pounds -- 188.5 tons -- of prescription drugs at nearly 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and nearly 4,000 state and local law enforcement partners. In its three previous take back events, DEA and its partners took in almost a million pounds -- nearly 500 tons -- of pills. This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained fron family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines -- flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash -- both pose potential safety and health hazards. Four days after the first event, Congress passed the Secure and Responsible Drug Disposal Act of 2010, which amends the Controlled Substances Act to allow an "ultimate user" of controlled substance medications to dispose Of them by delivering them to entities authorized by the attorney general to accept them. The act also allows the attorney general to authorize long-term care facilities to dispose of their residents' controlled substances in certain instances. DEA has begun drafting regulations to implement the act, a process that can take as long as 24 months. Until new regulations are in place, local law enforcement agencies like the Plumes County Sheriffs Office and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take-back events every few months.

I thought he was the only Black extant And so became the object of my stares. He was the first I'd seen when I was three, And though too young to understand the words, I listened to the grown-up repartee And took a lesson from the birds. This man, whose skin was darker than our own, Was us, though with a richer dermal frame, And with a special, vibrant vocal tone Like birds with varied songs, none hued the same. I hope our modern youth, exposed to all from birth, Will see that surface skins can never measure Worth. Salvatore (Sam) Catalano April 16, 2013 The information was passed on to a deputy.
