PORTLAND, ME - APRIL 26: Paul Wolf and members of the Maine Drug Enforcement Administration load boxes of discarded drugs that were collected in 162 sites statewide Saturday, April 26, 2014 as part of the 8th annual Drug Take Back Initiative. Michael Wardrop, Resident Agent in Charge for US DEA, says Maine has collected 106,000 lbs. of drugs over the last seven collections, and he say it looks like this year will reach last year's total of 22, 260 lbs collected.  Three UHaul trucks were filled with boxes that will be taken to a high-tech waste to energy facility in Massachusetts for incineration. Wardrop credits the tremendous partnership of the communities and their local enforcement for tackling this challenge. (Photo by Jill Brady/Staff Photographer)
