Police say there's a big advantage to bringing your medicine in rather than throwing it in the garbage.
RCPD Forensic Lab Director Richard Bleil says, "The problem with the garbage is that frequently it can still be retrieved by people who should not be having them, children are sort of the main things between the ages of 12 and 18. So by giving it to us we ensure that it's safely removed from the streets and won't cause anybody any harm by taking them."
He says illegally used prescription drugs are the second most frequently used drug on the streets behind marijuana.
