The initiative, announced Tuesday, will allow for the safe disposal of unwanted and expired medications, including opioids and other controlled substances, ensuring the drugs are not misused. The installation of kiosks began in California and will expand to 39 states this year, including Illinois.

 

Most of the kiosk locations will be at 24-hour Walgreens stores, the Deerfield-based company said.
