How to get rid of leftover prescription opioids

Doctors have prescribed painkillers to millions of people in the United States and other parts of the world, but those prescriptions often outlast the pain they're meant to subdue.  Continuing to take painkillers after the pain has mostly subsided increases the risk of addiction. Right now,  2.5 million  Americans are addicted to painkillers, and 500,000 of them have died due to an opioid overdose in the past 15 years.  Perhaps you have half a bottle of painkillers left over from getting your wisdom teeth removed, or knee surgery.

Easy Steps To Better Icon Design

Icon and vector marketplaces like " Iconfinder"  are making well-designed vector icons an inexpensive and readily available resource for web and print designers.

When reviewing icon sets submitted to the website, we have a responsibility to our designers and to our customers to make sure all premium icons on the website are of the highest possible quality. To achieve this, we are constantly aware of the difference between “not quite good enough” and “premium quality.” The difference is often very small and usually requires minimal changes, but it has a great impact on the design and value of the icon set. Unlike many other marketplaces, we rarely reject sets that don’t quite meet our quality requirements outright. Instead, we
