NEW KENS­ING­TON, PA. >> A gas sta­tion is try­ing blue lights in its bathrooms to make it dif­fi­cult for drug users to see their veins.

The Sheetz gas sta­tion chain has in­stalled the lights at its New Kens­ing­ton lo­ca­tion as a pi­lot project.

Some doc­tors have doubts, say­ing drug users can feel for their veins when they can’t see them.

West­more­land County has had 179 drug deaths this year.
