The London Police Service is unveiling details of an important province-wide public safety initiative to encourage Ontario residents to dispose of old and unused prescription medication in a secure, environmentally-friendly manner.
The London Police Service will be hosting collection locations on Prescription Drug Drop Off Day on Saturday, May 11, 2013 at Masonville Place, White Oaks Mall, Argyle Mall, and Cherryhill Mall between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Citizens wishing to dispose of outdated, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs may do so anonymously at the location nearest them usually without having to get out of their vehicles.
The Controlled Drug and Substances Act (CDSA) prohibits anyone from possessing oxycodone or any other prescribed medication without a prescription. It is a criminal offence to offer or sell a prescribed medication to another person. Purchasing another person?s prescribed drugs is also illegal. Prescription drug misuse is the use of prescription drugs for non-medical purposes. Common prescription drugs being misused are opioid pain relievers (such as oxycodone), anti-depressants, and stimulants. Recent studies indicate 24 per cent of teens reported misusing prescription medications at least once within the previous year. Most of the teens took the medication from their family home.
Prescription Drug Drop-off Day is proudly supported by the Ontario Association of Chiefs of Police (OACP), the Government of Ontario, and Public Safety Canada.

What was once a "wild crop", harvested and managed by trappers, wild ginseng has now become an illegal cash source for organized poachers who dig up entire colony's of this plant without regard for the future. The dried root of the ginseng plant is currently in high demand on the black market in many urban centres. Wild ginseng is now an endangered species under the Endangered Species Act (Ontario) and as a result it is illegal to harvest or sell any part of the plant.
The caption of the ad reads:
"It is against the law to harvest and sell wild ginseng.
Ginseng is a plant native to the undisturbed forests of Ontario. Wild ginseng is very slow growing and requires special conditions to survive. Ontario trappers have a long history of conserving this species. Wild populations of this important plant are threatened by illegal harvest for commercial purposes."
