It's one of the biggest drug problems facing our youth according to Santa Barbara County Sheriff's officers, and getting the drug can be as easy as opening the medicine cabinet.
As part of 'Over the Counter Awareness Week,' Santa Barbara County Sheriff's D.A.R.E officers are holding 'Operation Medicine Cabinet' today, February 26, at Joe Nightengale Elementary School in Orcutt, from 2:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.
The project aims to collect unused and expired drugs. Officers say young people often get their drugs from their parent's or grandparent's medicine cabinets.
If you can't make it to today's event, 'Operation Medicine Cabinet' drop-off boxes are available at every sheriff's substation in Santa Barbara County.
