Discuss drug take-back program at Issaquah forum
November 6, 2012
Residents can offer opinions about a proposal to create a King County prescription drug take-back program at a community forum.
Issaquah Drug Free Community Coalition members organized the event to discuss a countywide network of drop-off centers for leftover medications. The proposal is under consideration by the King County Board of Health.
The forum starts at 7 p.m. Nov. 14 in the Eagle Room at Issaquah City Hall, 130 E. Sunset Way.
Panelists include Margaret Shield, a leader in the statewide Take Back Your Meds Coalition and Board of Health members David Baker, mayor of Kenmore, and Ava Frisinger, mayor of Issaquah.
Some pharmacies and law enforcement agencies, including the Issaquah Police Department, offer drug take-back programs, but advocates said the available programs do not meet the need.
