Take back tallies nearly 2 tons of pills


— U.S. Attorney Booth Goodwin and U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Acting Resident Agent in Charge John Ryan jointly announced Monday that 3,742 pounds of unwanted and expired prescription drugs were collected from citizens and households across West Virginia in Saturday’s Prescription Drug Take-Back event.

“Getting almost 2 tons of unwanted prescription drugs out of people’s medicine cabinets is a huge victory for West Virginia,” said Goodwin.
