Project Medicine Drop

For too many New Jerseyans, addiction begins in the medicine cabinet.


The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has developed Project Medicine Drop as an important component of its effort to halt the abuse and diversion of prescription drugs. It allows consumers to dispose of unused and expired medications anonymously, seven days a week, 365 days a year, at "prescription drug drop boxes" located within the headquarters of participating police departments.

Congratulations!!

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under the trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the blue sky, is by no means waste of time. 
~John Lubbock, "Recreation," The Use of Life, 1894

"As Teddy Roosevelt once said, " Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing."  And I would add to that what makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love" -- Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)
