Saturday, Oct. 27, was National Drug Take Back Day. Police departments and health clinics all over Klickitat, Clark and Skamania counties collected leftover prescriptions from those who dropped them off at locations like Skyline Hospital. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), more people report using controlled prescription drugs than cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine combined. Unused medication left in the home increases opportunities for drug abuse and accidental poisoning.
