(UNDATED) - Indiana residents will be able to dispose of unused, expired or unwanted prescription drugs at state police posts and other locations on April 26.

The federal Drug Enforcement Administration leads the "Prescription Drug Take Back" initiative that seeks to prevent prescription drug abuse and theft. The program is intended for medications in liquid and pill forms only. New or used needles will not be accepted.

Last spring, Indiana residents turned in more than 1,875 pounds of unused prescription drugs. Nationwide, 11.5 tons of drugs were dropped off.
