Rx, Over-the-Counter Drug Disposal Program Expands

Posted: Updated:

"Put your pills in the pod!"

That's the message that's spreading across northern Michigan.

The Prescription and Over-the-Counter Drug Disposal Program, also known as 'POD,' continues to expand.

The Charlevoix Police Department is one of the most recent places to get one of the drop boxes.

Anyone can drop off medications Monday through Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

The police chief says the drop boxes come at a time prescription drug crimes are on the rise.
