No worries if you forgot about Saturday’s drug take back because now there are two drop sites for medications in the county!  Thanks to Project Lazarus  there are mailbox dropboxes in the lobbies of the Boone Police Department and the Watauga County Sheriff’s Office and you can drop off unused and/or expired medications anytime!
