Drug take back day produces a large amount of unwanted prescription drugs

Saturday's National Prescription drug take back day led to operation UNITE collecting a ton of unwanted prescription drugs. The group held the event in 34 Kentucky counties. The event is an effort to provide people a way to dispose of prescription drugs in a safe way. The state has witnessed an increase over the past several years in prescription drug abuse. Kentucky has one of the highest prescription drug overdose rates in the country.
