King County to set up its own drug take-back program
SEATTLE -- After weeks of deliberation, the King County Board of Health unanimously approved a new regulation Thursday that would establish a drug take-back program. The program would be paid for by pharmaceutical companies that sell drugs within the county. As a first responder, Scott DePuy has seen numerous cases of prescription drug overdoses. One case in particular changed his life forever. Five years ago, DePuy's 17 year-old son, Ryan, accidentally consumed a lethal cocktail of pills.
