DETROIT (AP) -

Police departments around Michigan will collect unwanted prescription drugs Saturday at more than 130 locations.

There is no charge, and no questions will be asked.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration says the home medicine cabinet is a common plan for prescription drug abusers to find drugs.

Liquids and needles will not be accepted at disposal sites. For a list of sites in Michigan, go to www.dea.gov , click the "Got Drugs?" icon and follow the links to a database.

A phone number is also available: (800) 882-9529. The drop-off will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
