With apologies for cross-postings.

Attached is a press release PSI sent out last week. It is pertinent to the role of pharmaceutical companies in providing secure pharmaceutical collection and disposal programs. Specifically, we would like them to provide and fund such programs, not instruct people to mix medicines with water and throw them in the trash as has already been noted from the PhRMA release.

Best regards,

Sierra E. Fletcher
