Want To Get Rid Of Your Vaping Device? The DEA Will Take It 

This year the Drug Enforcement Administration is accepting electronic vaping devices (provided any lithium ion batteries are removed) during its annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day event. In the wake of vaping-related deaths and illnesses, the Drug Enforcement Administration is expanding "National Prescription Drug Take Back Day," and this year allowing people to drop off electronic vaping devices and cartridges.

The annual event lets people anonymously dispose of expired, unused, and unwanted prescription medications at collection sites across the U.S. The DEA launched the semi-annual initiative in 2010 in the hopes of preventing pill abuse, misuse and theft. As concern grows about the health risks of vaping and electronic cigarettes, the agency announced this week it will also accept electronic vaping devices and cartridges, provided any lithium ion batteries are removed.

"In an effort to support a healthy lifestyle and energetic population, especially amongst America's youth, DEA is committed to doing all it can to help safely dispose of vaping devices and substances," agency officials stated in a press release. Saturday's Take Back event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at collection sites across the nation.
