"Everyday in this country, 25 hundred children experience some issue with prescription drugs. The biggest benefit is the safety of everybody concerned. This has become a large problem in our country and take-back prescription drugs is the answer to getting rid of that problem," says Joe Smith, Chief Oneida Indian Nation Police Department.
Previous nationwide drug-back days have taken over 1-point-five million pounds of prescription medications out of circulation.Those who want to drop off prescription drugs with Oneida Nation can take them to the Turning Stone Event Center driveway from 10am to 2pm tomorrow.
