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  http://projectlazarus.org/  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!
