7,850 pounds of medications returned in San Diego drug take-back

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said it collected 7,850 pounds of unused, expired and unwanted medications in the San Diego area as part of National Prescription Drug Take Back Day on April 24.

The DEA collected more than 829,500 pounds of medications nationally, spokeswoman Rachel Crowley said in a statement.
