Absolutely true.  This is where Operation Medicine Cabinet is very  
Our pharmaceutical take back program (events bi annually---working on  
permanent drop boxes at law enforcement facilities at present that comply  with 
DEA regulations that exist at present)  
 Here in Florida we have a simple and effective way of collecting all  
medications and controlled substances in coordination with Drug Free Collier and 
 the Collier County Sheriff's Office.  
This program is being conducted in several counties throughout Florida  and 
has been endorsed by the Florida Crime Prevention Association just last  
month.  Anyone wanting information on how to set up this simple and very  
effective program, please contact

All the info you are  receiving is fine but nothing helps with controlled 
substances…that’s where  the real problem is.

Subject: [Pharmwaste] Donation of unused  medications
Does anyone have a good resource for information on  the donation of unused 
medicines or information that basically prohibits  this?  I have a 
pharmacist who supplies meds to long term care facilities  in blister packs and is 
interested in donating unused portions.  Also,  having recently conducted a 
take-back program, we collected numerous items  from the public that were 
still factory-sealed.  Thank you.
