United States Attorney for the District of MD Erek L. Barron and Assistant Special Agent in Charge (ASAC) Orville O. Greene of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) visited HC DrugFree’s Medication and Sharps collection site held on the DEA’s 21st National Drug Take Back Day, and along with approximately 100 other adults, both men visited the trailer set up to simulate a bedroom/bathroom where drugs can be Hidden In Plain Site.

“Over the course of the last year, the state of Maryland has seen a significant increase in drug overdoses and crimes that exploit the opioid epidemic.  For example, fentanyl, a drug that can be consumed safely when prescribed by a physician, can be severely addictive and has plagued countless Maryland families. Thanks to the DEA’s efforts and the abundance of collection sites, individuals can safely dispose of unused medications that could lead to prescription drug abuse” said Barron.
