Attorney General Frosh To Host Prescription Drug Take-Back
10/11/2019, 1:27 p.m.
BALTIMORE In support of National Drug Take-Back Day, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh and the Office of Attorney General are partnering with the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Baltimore Ravens to hold a Prescription Drug Take-Back event on Sunday, October 13, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. on the RavensWalk, located on the walkway leading from Oriole Park to M&T Bank Stadium, between parking lots B and C.
In an effort to dispose of unused or expired prescription drugs, the Take-Back event will allow those attending the Ravens game to drop off their unwanted prescription drugs. Disposal is free and anonymous. With opioid use and abuse at epidemic levels across the country, consumers should dispose of expired, unwanted, or unused medicines to reduce accidental or intentional overdose, or illegal abuse.
The DEA will safely dispose of all prescription drugs accepted. Items NOT accepted include:
- Asthma inhalers
- Mercury thermometers
- Iodine-containing medications
