WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — People had the opportunity to properly dispose of unwanted or expired prescription drugs on Saturday.

The event was organized through a partnership with the West Palm Beach Police Department and was held at the Walgreens off Palm Beach Lakes Boulevard.

The D.E.A. says since the pandemic began, drug overdoses have accelerated significantly.
