The city of Laramie are giving people the opportunity to live a drug free life. The Laramie Police Department, Walgreen’s Pharmacy on 4005 East Grand, and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) are teaming up to give the public an opportunity to rid themselves of harmful pill abuse and dangerously expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.

People can simply bring their medications or prescription drugs of any sort for disposal to Walgreen’s Pharmacy at 4005 E. Grand Ave. on April 27th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The service is absolutely free of charge and anonymous with no questions asked.

Statistics have showed this kind of event can be a very meaningful one as just last September, Americans disposed 244 tons of prescription drugs at over 5,200 sites operated by the DEA and its thousands of state and local law enforcement partners. In the previous five Take Back events such as this one coming up there was over 2 million pounds of prescription drugs and over a thousand tons of pills turned in from the public.

If you are unable to attend this event, the Police Department and the DEA will continue to hold prescription drug take back events every few months.

For more information on this event, you can contact Crime Prevention Officer Chris Cleven from the Laramie Police Department at (307) 721-3527.
