In an effort to rid households of unwanted or unused prescription drugs, Ashland County residents now have a safe way to dispose of the medications.

Prescription drug drop boxes are now located at the Ashland County Sheriff's Department at 1205 East Main Street in Ashland and at the Loudonville Police Department at 156 Water Street.

The abuse and misuse of prescription drugs are second only to marijuana use as the nation's most prevalent drug problem. Ashland County Mental Health and Recovery Board Executive Director Steven Stone says prescription drug abuse and misuse is a significant problem locally.

Stone says the prescription drug drop boxes are yet another tool to help in the effort to reduce drug-related crime, prevent accidental poisoning and prevent prescription drug abuse.
