National Drug Take Back Day

This week, we are sharing a post from American Farm Bureau Federation’s Cyndie Shearing in regard to National Drug Take Back Day. If you have unused prescription drugs in your home, please consider participating.

By Cyndie Shearing, AFBF Director of Internal Communications

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being taken from their home medicine cabinet.

This Saturday, Oct. 26, we can all do our part to protect our families, friends and communities from the tragic consequences of drug misuse by participating in the National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.
