AMCC is designed to help New Jersey residents see their medicine cabinets through new eyes -- as an access point for potential misuse and abuse of over-the-counter and prescription medicine by young people. Seventy percent of people who abuse prescription drugs say they get them from the medicine cabinets of friends and relatives.
Residents of Hudson County can take part at County Plaza 257 Cornelison Ave. in Jersey City. Secaucus residents are urged to go to the Secaucus Police Department at 1203 Paterson Plank Rd in Secaucus.
