Walgreens announces medicine disposal program

Now, Walgreens has announced what it calls the first ongoing, nationwide safe medication disposal program.

For less than $3, customers can purchase a postage paid envelope that allows them to dump their unused medicines into it and dispose of it in an eco-friendly and safe manner.

This issue has gained attention as more and more teens have been caught abusing unused medication in the home.
