DuBois, PA – You could be a drug dealer and not even know it. If you have prescription medications in an unlocked cabinet in your home, someone could steal them.

In fact, many young people who abuse prescription drugs take them from medicine cabinets.

Susan Ford, the director the Clearfield Jefferson Drug and Alcohol Commission, warns that you should keep an eye on your medicines. It’s more common than you think.

Prescription drug abuse has quadrupled in the past 10 years, and it now results in more deaths than all illicit street drugs combined.
