The City of Berkeley is participating in a program designed to encourage citizens to turn-in all of their unused or expired medication for safe disposal.  
 
Berkeley officials, in partnership with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and other area Police Departments, announce another National Prescription Drug Take-Back Event this Saturday, April 26.  
 
These Take Back Days give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous, expired, unused, or unwanted prescription drugs.  The service is free and anonymous.  
 
According to the 2012 National Survey on Drug Use and Health,  almost twice as many Americans (6.8 million) currently abuse prescription drugs than the number of those abusing cocaine, hallucinogens, heroin, and inhalants combined.
 Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet.
 
The City of Berkeley’s Collection site will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Berkeley Police Department, located on North Hanley Rd.

 ST. LOUIS (AP) - Coal miner Peabody Energy Corp. says its first-quarter loss more than doubled on weak prices. The results are worse than Wall Street expected and shares are off 3.5 percent in premarket trading.
 
The world's biggest private-sector coal company said Thursday that its loss for common shareholders during the January-March period was $48.5 million, or 18 cents per share. That compares with a loss of $23.4 million, or 9 cents per share, a year earlier.
 
Excluding special charges, the St. Louis-based company's loss was 19 cents per share. Revenue fell about 7 percent, to $1.63 billion from $1.75 billion.
 
On average, analysts polled by FactSet expected a profit of a penny per share on revenue of $1.69 billion.
