HOW TO DISPOSE OF OLD PILLS

(I will have another story by noon.)

Below is a story on the issue.  True to form, Brownsville is not included as a city for disposing of old pills.   YOU DO NOT FLUSH THEM DOWN THE TOILET.

I have a friend with bags of old pills.   His son takes a lot of medications.  The  doctors are always changing the medicines because they either do not work, or they become toxic to the child.

Where is Brownsville's Health Department to insure Brownsville is part of this program?  No where to be found.  Where is the doctor on our esteemed city commission on the issue?  No where to be found.  So I guess Brownsville will continue to poison its water supply as people continue to flush their old pills down the toilet.
