Hannibal Regional Hospital’s Auxiliary, Hannibal Police and the D-E-A are hosting a drug take back today from 9 a.m. until noon at Hannibal Regional Hospital.

The event will be just inside the main entrance. They will accept prescription, over the counter, controlled substances, liquids containing medication, prescription inhalers, medicated ointments and patches. You’re asked to bring medications in original packaging to help avoid additional processing.

The take back will not accept illicit drugs, sharp objects including needles, radioactive medicines and biohazards.
