By Sam Hickman with Brunswick Beacon — The Brunswick Coalition, which has been established to combat prescription drug abuse, has purchased billboards to create awareness about the potentially deadly consequences of leaving prescription medications unattended.
One poster features the eyes of a young woman with an adjacent message that reads, “She gets her hair from her mom. Her eyes from her dad. And her drugs from her grandma’s purse.”
The billboards are part of a National Family Partnership and Lock Your Meds campaign designed to reduce prescription drug abuse “by making adults aware that they are the ‘unwitting suppliers’ of prescription medications being used in unintended ways, especially by young people,” according to its website.
