Prescription Drugs

In an effort to reduce prescription drug mis-use and abuse, unused prescription drugs are often collected for proper disposal.

No. Two pharmacies in Washington State just got caught repackaging and reselling old medication found in nearby nursing homes. Heavy consequences await if they are found guilty in court. It is horribly unsafe relabel unused medication because you do not know the expiration date, batch numbers, and other tracking info vital for the prescription.
