Last night I was at a San Francisco Walgreens store where my wife works as a pharmacist and noticed that they were about to throw away around 100 boxes of nicotine gum with the expiration dates 4/12, 5/12, and 6/12. They were going to throw out these boxes of nicotine gum simply because they had expired and cannot by law sell expired products.

I am sure that this gum is still fine and would be just as effective as non-expired gum.

They normally sell for ~$50 per box.

I do not smoke, but did not want to see these boxes of gum go to waste so I took them all.

I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas or knew where I could donate this expired gum to people who want to quit smoking but cannot afford or have the desire to pay $50 per box. I am NOT trying to sell the gum, but would like to GIVE the gum FOR FREE to a person or group who could benefit from the gum. I would even be willing to pay for the shipping to get this gum to the person(s) who need it.

Does anyone here know anyone or have any suggestions?

you are exactly right about the gum being just fine for a very long time after the expiration. I myself had a tough time quitting and staying quit with an aide, so I finally quit cold turkey.

What I would do, is put an ad (free) in Craigslist. See what kind of response you get.

Again, you are very kind!

Try calling your local American Cancer Society or the nearest community health department/clinic, and see if they can direct you to a donation program.

Hi Mike;
If you have any gum you want to get rid of I could sure use it for my wife. I have recently become unemployed do to an acoustic Nerouma, my wife had lung cance and the only thing that keeps her from smoking is the gum. So if you have any to get rid of it would really help.

Thanks,
Chuck

I chew nicotine gum and use expired gum, I will pay the shipping cost if you will send it to me. Also any more that they are going to throw away. Let me know if you still have it. Thanks

I will take all you can get and pay a little more than shipping cost. Do you have or can get any more?
