7 On Your Side told you last week about the importance of disposing of your medication properly.

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.
