DEA collecting unused or expired prescription drugs

FRESNO, Calif.

The drug enforcement agency is collecting prescription drugs this Saturday. Some valley locations are among the more than 3,400 sites, set up for safe disposal. The goal of this weekend's national prescription drug take-back campaign is to lower the misuse and abuse of pills.

Drug enforcement agents say a majority of abused prescription drugs can be found in the medicine cabinet.

The take-back day event takes place this Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
