April 23, 2014 - In just four months, nearly 100 pounds of prescription and over-the-counter medications were turned into the med-return box at the Crawford County Courthouse.

At the beginning of the year, the Crawford County District Attorney installed four medicine return boxes for people to turn in unwanted, unused or expired prescription or over the counter meds.

With prescription drug abuse the nation's fastest growing drug problem, officials say this program helps cut back on the problem.

The med-return boxes can be found in Crawford County at the Courthouse, the Conneaut Lake Regional Police Department, the Linesville Borough Police Department and the West Mead Township Police Department.
