Safely dispose of old medicines at event Saturday

Tennesseans will be able to safely dispose expired, unwanted and unused prescription pills this Saturday during National Prescription Take-Back Day. The event is an effort to rid potentially dangerous prescription drugs from homes so they won't be abused or wind up in the water supply.

At a Glance: Electronic cigarettes

ELECTRONIC CIGARETTES: The battery-powered devices made of plastic or metal heat a liquid nicotine solution, creating vapor that users inhale. Some models are disposable, and some are designed to be refilled with cartridges or tanks containing what enthusiasts call "e-juice." Some e-cigarettes are made to look like a real cigarette with a tiny light on the tip that glows like the real thing.
