The Holland Public Safety Headquarters, the Allegan County Sheriff’s Headquarters, the Michigan State Police post in Wayland, the Grandville Police Headquarters, Shoreline Wellness and Rehab in South Haven, and Metro Health in Wyoming are among thousands of sites nationwide that will process without questions such controlled substances in an effort to keep them out of the wrong hands.
