Last Friday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with CVS and the United Way, held a drug takeback campaign to collect unwanted or expired medications. The goal of these campaigns is to ward off prescription drug abuse and prevent the drugs from entering Florida’s water supply or landfills.
As an added incentive, the first several people to drop their medications at the community office of Florida Rep. Ari Porth, of Coral Springs, received a $5 CVS gift card while supplies lasted. Donors were permitted to take off labels with identifying information.
