GONZALES, La. (BRPROUD) – The Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office is asking residents who have unused or expired prescription drugs to drop them off on Saturday.

 Ochsner says that studies show teenagers often get high on prescription drugs from their parent’s medicine cabinets.

In Gonzales, the sheriff’s office will collect lost or misused prescription medications from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Oct. 29 at 13200 Airline Highway. Liquids, syringes, or other sharp illegal drugs will not be accepted.

The sheriff’s office says the service is free and anonymous, and no questions will be asked.
