FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky State Police’s prescription drug take-back event has resulted in 1,200 pounds of prescription medications being turned in across the state.

Police say the program is an effort to let people dispose of unwanted or unused medications safely and without concern they will get into the wrong hands.

According to state police, studies indicate most abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends - even from the home medicine cabinet.

The event was held last Saturday.
