Donating Unopened/Unexpired Prescription Drugs???
So does anyone know of a legit way to donate unopened/unexpired prescription drugs? One of our parents whom we partially care for was switched to a different medication because they couldn't tolerate it. Thing is, they ordered like a 6 month supply at a time.

Being the philanthropist (and cheapskate) I always wondered why 1st world countries make it policy to flush SO many drugs that are perfectly fine. I realize the safety concerns, but to me the benefits outweigh the risks. Even if we thought the US was too good to reuse them. Why not donate them overseas. Even if 1 out of 1000 had a problem. The overall gains outweigh the loss. I'd rather lose 1 out of 1000 trying to help than 1 out of 2 doing nothing at all.

Any place I could mail it where it'd be used in developing countries. Personally, I just prefer to give it to someone stateside who's without insurance. But I'm sure I'd be thrown in jail or something. If we used more common sense with our healthcare maybe costs wouldn't be so high and Obamacare wouldn't have gained so much traction...

By the way, it isn't narcotic (sorry MPFUNK....j/k). Just Zoloft, but they couldn't tolerate it.

Gotta be some way to put it to use. I'm in Idaho, in case state legislation factors in.
