Get rid of your old medications on National Drug Take Back Day

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is giving people a chance to throw away unwanted medications in a safe way. 

Saturday, October 27 is National Prescription Drug Take Back Day. More than 400 tons of unused prescriptions were collected across the country during a Take Back day in April. 

A 2016 survey showed the majority of people who abused prescription drugs got them from family or friends' medicine cabinets.
