7,000-plus lbs. of medication collected in Nebraska

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Three law enforcement agencies collected more than 7,000 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs at a recent event.  Attorney General Jon Bruning announced that the collection event was held last Saturday by the Nebraska State Patrol and the Grand Island and Lincoln police departments as part of the Nationwide Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.  The agencies collected nearly 7,400 pounds of unused medication.  Bruning says that statewide, more than 28,000 pounds of unwanted prescription medication has been collected at such events since 2011.  The collections help prevent pill abuse and theft by getting rid of potentially dangerous expired, unused and unwanted medications.
