Drug takeback numbers are in

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange is praising the response of the recent Prescription Drug Takeback Day.Nearly 10,000 lbs. of unused, expired and unwanted prescription drugs were collected during the National Prescription Takeback Day in April. This brings the total to nearly 35,000 lbs. since the initiative started. Strange says events like this are an important and basic step to fight drug abuse and drug-related crimes.
