Canonsburg Mayor David H. Rhome said this has become clear: "In the medicine cabinet is where drug addiction starts."
And he said it's time for the Canonsburg Police Department, the mayor's office and the community at large to do something about it.
So Rhome has invited Canonsburg residents to take part in the fifth National Drug Take-Back program—the fourth in which the borough has taken part.
Uniformed police officers, as well as the mayor, will be on hand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at the Canonsburg Shop N Save to collect expired, unused or unwanted drugs.
The program is sponsored by Rhome, the Washington County Chiefs of Police Association, the Washington County District Attorney and the United States Department of Justice.
Residents need only place pills in a plastic bag. All labels should be removed from liquid prescription bottles. There will be no questions asked, Rhome said.
