If you have unused or expired prescription pills in your medicine cabinet this weekend you'll have an opportunity to dispose of those pills safely.

 Saturday, the Drug Enforcement Administration will hold its second national prescription drug take back day.

Flushing those pills down the toilet or throwing them away could pose a health hazard. And keeping those pills around makes it easy for people seeking prescription pills to steal and abuse.

"Most of the young people we catch with drugs come from home, from grandmas house, and from the neighbors house, save a child and get rid of old drugs," said Ben Hill County Sheriff Bobby McLemore.
