BLACKSBURG, Va. — You can hand over any prescription drugs to Blacksburg Police this weekend - no questions asked.

It's part of a nationwide event called the Take-Back Initiative.  Blacksburg Police are partnering with the

Drug Enforcement Administration to collect unused, unneeded or expired prescription drugs.  It's all in an effort to prevent increased pill abuse and theft.

Blacksburg Police and the DEA will be collecting those drugs at the Community Center inside the Blacksburg Parks & Recreation Department.  That's on Patrick Henry Drive.

Seventy-five communities across the Commonwealth will be taking part in the National Take-Back Day.
