We remember a time, not so many years ago, when people believed that drugs were taken only by the bad guys, and that our nice families were immune from such addictions. Today, we realize there is a drug for every age and background and even those drugs make for the best of purposes can be perverted for false pleasure.
Part of the problem comes from legally prescribed drugs which are carelessly stored or discarded.
If you have had a loved one die recently and still have his or her prescription drugs, or if you have had an illness yourself and no longer need your medicine, we ask that you consider disposing of your drugs safely by taking it to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office Administrative Building lobby at 911 Chambers Drive, off of Sigman Road, Conyers, on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The RCSO says no questions will be asked.
Dispose of the drugs you no longer need the safe way.
