The Kentucky State Police are calling the latest drug take-back day another success.

The troopers' effort got 1,200 pounds of prescription medications out of homes and schools and off the streets.

People turned in their old and unused medicine last Saturday in the eighth annual effort with the US drug enforcement agency.

Studies show a majority of abused prescriptions came from family and friends, including the home medicine cabinet.
