CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) – The West Virginia attorney general’s office and Capitol Police are participating in a drug take-back event this weekend with dozens of other collections sites in the state.

The event will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday near the East Rotunda on the California Street side of the West Virginia Capitol.

The attorney general’s office said more than 100 collection locations are taking back unused medication in West Virginia during the event.

Drug Take-Back Day was initially launched in 2010. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spearheads the effort.
