Prescription drug abuse is a serious problem across Montana …

… and unless you’re a doctor or have some training and education in addictions counseling there’s really not much you can do about it.

us-epidemic-drug-detoxBut community crises call for community action, so it’s imperative that we all do what we can to chip away – no matter how insignificant the action may seem.

That’s why Jack 5 is proud to promote this weekend’s 12th annual National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

Nearly 70 percent of prescription drug abusers get their drugs not from a doctor, but from friends and family members. Which means you can do a lot to reduce the risk of prescription drug abuse just by ensuring your medications don’t end up in the wrong hands.

Stop by Southgate Mall any time Saturday between 10 am and 2 pm to drop off your unused medications. Just a small way you can protect your friends, your family, and your entire community. If you’re not in Missoula, find out your closest drop-off site HERE.

And if you can’t make it to the Take-Back event on Saturday, check out this list of permanent drug drop box locations.

Last year, nearly 3,000 pounds of prescription drugs were collected and destroyed in Montana on Take-Back Day. Let’s do it again.

Here’s a comedy tip: Next time you’re at a funny show, even if you don’t “get it” all you have to do is just watch the faces of those around you. Jack does is, and it works every time: When they laugh, he laughs.

943289761Your laughter will be a little less contrived, however, if you make it to Sunday’s Hasan Minhaj show at the Wilma. Minhaj got famous on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” but you might have seen him at other stops along the way.

Jack has free tickets to the show for you AND a friend. All you have to do is submit your information HERE or follow the link below.

And then please, for Jack’s sake, laugh at ALL the appropriate times and ONLY the appropriate times.

We’ll be watching.
