Medication Cleanout in Amarillo

Amarillo -

Many local residents cleaned out their medicine cabinets today as part of a brand-new state program.

The Texas Tech Pharmacy School teamed up with the Amarillo Police Department today to sort through boxes full of old prescription pills and medications.

The program's main concern is preventive safety, as seventy percent of pediatric overdoses are the result of kids getting into household medicine cabinets.
