Take Back Your Meds campaign holds monthly coordinating conference calls and here are my notes from today's call --
-- The DEA is hosting another prescription drug take-back event on October 29. This will probably be the last or second-to-last nationwide event, with the last one possibly to be held in early 2012, since new federal legislation will allow for take-back programs without DEA involvement.
-- "Extended producer responsibility", including the responsibility of pharmaceutical companies to be stewards of their products after they are sold, was the topic of a panel discussion during the National Conference of State Legislators earlier this month. The only non-industry panelist was from the Product Policy Institute and he blogged about his experience.
