For too many New Jerseyans, addiction begins in the medicine cabinet.
The East Brunswick Police Department has installed a lockable metal "prescription drug drop boxes," resembling a mailbox, in the hallway outside the police department's front desk. Members of the public are invited to come in and use the box 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, to dispose of their unused and expired medications. The drop box accepts solid pharmaceuticals such as pills, capsules, patches, inhalers, and pet medications. The drop box cannot accept syringes or liquids.
