Unfortunately, no liquids or needles will be accepted at this event.

The initiative addresses a vital public safety and health issue. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than seven million Americans currently abuse prescription drugs. Studies also show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.
