The first I heard of some public entity wanting to collect unused drugs was in David Bachmann’s unsuccessful campaign for McHenry County Coroner.
That was on October 21, 2007, when Bachmann was introducing what he wanted to do, if elected to replace Republican incumbent Marlene Lantz.
Then, this January, I saw that the Drug Enforcement Administration was doing essentially what Bachmann proposed, but on a broader scale, and getting a lot of publicity for its efforts.
Now Grafton Township Supervisor Linda Moore brings to my attention the Huntley Police Department’s Drug Take Back Program on Saturday, September 25, 2010.
So, mark the calendar if you are in the Huntley, western Lake in the Hills area.
And drop your unneeded drugs off at the Huntley Police Department 10-2.
