Luna County’s Drug Take Back Day a success


The first Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) Drug Take Back Day in Luna County was a success with 11 pounds of unused medications disposed of by residents during the last Saturday of October.

Other partners included Deming’s WalMart Super Center and the New Mexico Department of Health. Residents can dispose of medications year-round in the lobby of the Deming Police Department at the green MedReturn kiosk, 700 East Pine Street.
