What's the hottest new way to beat the pain pill abuse epidemic?
Just start feeding your own fire breathing dragon.
Operation UNITE brought the mobile incinerating "Pill Dragon" to Johnson County Thursday morning.
Declared "Clean your medicine cabinet out day" everyone from grandparents to police officers brought in un-used, unwanted or confiscated pills .
With nearly two thousand degrees of heat, the dragon incinerates the pills with no harm to the environment.
Nearly everyone feeding the pill dragon has a family member or friend with an addiction problem.
“Back in the day it was a friend of a friend now there seems to be no family or friend immune to the pill problem in eastern Kentucky,” Dan Smoot said.
Traveling through eastern Kentucky for the past ten months, the pill dragon has incinerated more than 350,000 pills.
