VAPE TAKE-BACK


AUTHORITIES SAY THEY WILL BE ACCEPTING A NEW TYPE OF ITEM ON NATIONAL DRUG TAKE-BACK DAY, THIS SATURDAY. FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE D-E-A WILL ACCEPT VAPING DEVICES AND CARTRIDGES AT ANY OF THE DROP OFF LOCATIONS - JUST MAKE SURE YOU TAKE OUT THE LITHIUM ION BATTERIES. THE MOVE TO ACCEPT VAPING DEVICES COMES AFTER A NATIONWIDE CONCERN OVER ILLNESSES AND DEATH RELATED TO VAPING. THE D-E-A SAYS IT'S AN EMERGING PUBLIC HEALTH THREAT TO THE NATION'S YOUTH, MUCH LIKE DRUGS. THE DRUG TAKE BACK DAY IS ON SATURDAY.
