Two times each year the SACK Coalition and the Kanabec County Sheriff’s Office participate in the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) National Prescription Drug Take Back Day at Coborn’s Pharmacy in Mora. The most recent event was held on April 29th and just under 50 pounds of drugs were collected!
Drugs collected from National Take Back Day and from the Drug Drop Box site are transported by a Kanabec County Deputy to a facility in Alexandria, MN where they are incinerated.
In the past year Kanabec County has collected 1080 lbs of unused, expired, or unwanted drugs!
Kanabec County has a 24/7/365 Drug Drop Box located in the Kanabec County Jail Lobby! Safe. Confidential. Convenient. More information can be located here.
The DEA’s National Drug Take Back Day takes place each April and October.
