Wisconsin Drug Disposal Bill passes the Senate

There's an important update to what's new in unwanted medicine legislation. On February 18, the Senate passed the Wisconsin Drug Disposal Bill (AB 448 / SB 351). The bill allows for mail-back and on-site medicine collection programs, and would clear the way for
controlled substances to be legally brought to take-back programs by individuals other than the person for whom they were prescribed. If signed by the Governor, the new law will take effect in July 2015, pending new regulations on disposal of controlled substances expected to be released by the Drug Enforcement Administration.
