Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 at 1:03 pm


On Saturday, April 27th the Pine County Sheriff’s Office participated in a prescription medication take back program sponsored by the Federal Drug Enforcement Administration. In a press release we learned that 80 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs were collected and destroyed at a licensed incinerator.

Prescription drug abuse is a continuing problem in our county and residents are encouraged to dispose of old or unneeded medications by dropping them off at the Sheriff’s Office in Pine City.
