Spring Cleaning: Laconia promoting drug take-back programs


LACONIA - Laconia deputy fire chief Shawn Riley is passionate about the prescription drug take-back program, but he realized he wasn't practicing what he preached.

"My wife Stephanie died of cancer in December," he said. "She had lots of prescription narcotics. It occurred to me that, of all people, I should be responsible with prescription medication."

The Laconia fire and police departments want to get the word out.

This spring, they're asking Granite Staters to take the time to properly dispose of expired or unused prescription drugs at a drop- off location.

The drop-off location in Laconia is at the police station.

The lobby which holds the dropbox is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
