Baltimore Co. officials to accept unused prescriptions

The Baltimore County Police Department will accept prescription medications at multiple locations on Saturday as part of a program intended to get unused and potentially dangerous drugs out of homes.

The initiative, run in tandem with the Drug Enforcement Administration, will collect prescriptions from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Those dropping off medications will not be required to show ID or answer questions. Officials will not accept illicit drugs or syringes.

Law enforcement will accept the drugs at three locations: 6424 Windsor Mill Road, Woodlawn; 111 Wight Avenue, Cockeysville; and, 1747 Merritt Boulevard, Baltimore.
