Carleton Place OPP to host prescription drug drop off day – May 11, 2013

 The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) has recently unveiled details of an important province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner.

The Lanark County – Carleton Place OPP will be hosting a collection location on Prescription Drug Drop Off Day on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at the Carleton Place OPP Detachment Parking Lot between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously at the Carleton Place OPP Detachment without having to get out of their vehicles.

The Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) prohibits anyone from possessing oxycodone or any other prescribed medication without a prescription. It is a criminal offence to offer or sell a prescribed medication to another person. Purchasing another person’s prescribed drugs is also illegal. Prescription drug misuse is the use of prescription drugs for non-medical purposes. Common prescription drugs being misused are opioid pain relievers (such as oxycodone), anti-depressants, and stimulants. Recent studies indicate 24 per cent of teens reported misusing prescription medications at least once within the previous year. Most of the teens took the medication from their family home.

Prescription Drug Drop-off Day is proudly supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Ontario Provincial Police, the Government of Ontario, and Public Safety Canada.
