AMARILLO -- People around the Panhandle clean out their medicine cabinets, and perhaps save a life in the process.

The fifth annual "Medication Cleanout" was out at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center on Saturday

From 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. Saturday, people had the chance to bring all unused medication to be properly disposed of by the School of Pharmacy.

On average, roughly 38,000 people die of medication poisonings yearly in the United States.
