Meds turned in at DEA drug take back in O.C.

PLACENTIA, Calif. The /*DEA*/ is behind the nationwide program, aimed at taking back outdated meds to keep them out of the hands of abusers.

Placentia police helped in the effort. More than 100 people showed up to drop off old prescriptions on Saturday.

Some even handed in over-the-counter medicine.

Another benefit to such a program is that the drugs will be properly disposed of without harming the environment.
