“Over 17,000 calls to the Washington Poison Center were about children poisoned by medicines,” reads a press release. “Washington State needs a statewide take-back program to protect its children. Teens use medicines to get high second only to marijuana, and they start as early as 12 years old. Washington needs a statewide take-back program so families can keep unwanted medicines out of the hands of our teens.”
