Prescription drug take back day gets good results

Local authorities are participating in a nation-wide effort that cracks down on drug abuse.

It's national prescription drug take-back day.

Residents can drop off unwanted prescription medications-no questions asked.

Officials then properly dispose of the drugs.

Police in Flint say they received hundreds of pills early in the day.

They say it's good to get the drugs off the streets.

Officials say elderly people are often robbed of their prescription medications so disposing of them is a good idea.
