Gas station installs blue lights to combat drug use

A Sheetz gas station is installing blue  lighting to combat drug use. The lights make it difficult for hypodermic users to see their veins.

(CNN)An unlikely front line has emerged in America's opioid epidemic: public restrooms.

Coded door locks and biohazard boxes are just a few of the ways store owners are making their bathrooms safer.
The new lights being tested at a Sheetz gas station in a New Kensington, Pennsylvania, bathroom are another attempt to do just that.
"It's a little jarring at first. ... You go into a bathroom, you expect it to be well-lit," Nathan Murray Sinicki, of New Kensington, told CNN affiliate WPXI.
    But it's not.
    It's blue.
