The idea of a Prescription Drug take-back day, where you can anonymously get rid of old drugs around the house, is seen as such a good idea that the local Police have decided to make the drop box permanent. The box is located at the Carmel Valley Police Station on El Camino Real, just inside the back parking lot fence (it looks like a mailbox). Just reach through the fence and drop your unwanted items into the box. Items in the box will be incinerated.

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day is September 25, 2010. From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm you can drop off unwanted perscription drugs at more than 20 sites throughout the county. Officials will be standing by to accept unused prescription drugs with no questions asked. In Carmel Valley, you can drop off old prescriptions at the San Diego Police Department's Northwestern Division, 12592 El Camino Real, San Diego, CA 92130.

In San Diego, in addition to the abuse of Vicodin, Adderall, Soma, Xanax, Ambien, Codiene, Methadone, and Fentanyl; OxyContin is rapidly becoming the drug of choice by children and young adults between the ages of 14 and 30. A significant number of young people, generally students between 17 and 25 years of age, are buying OxyContin from street level dealers in the United States, Mexico, and illegally over the Internet. Citizens can unknowingly supply dangerous drugs to their children through unused prescriptions in their medicine chests. Please consider taking potentially dangerous unused, expired, and unwanted prescription drugs to a local site, getting them out of circulation.
