Convenience Store Installs Anti-Drug Lights To Deter Heroin Use In Bathrooms

According to the Tribune Review, the Sheetz on Freeport Street in New Kensington is testing dark blue-colored lights in their bathrooms to keep drug abusers from using opioids. That store, located at 325 Freeport St.in Parnassus, is now the only location with the lights installed. The light system in the restrooms at this New Kensington store is created to help our customers and employees avoid unsafe situations.

Ruffner said no decision has been made by Sheetz about whether to install blue lights in the restrooms of its 563 other stores, several of which are located in Berks County. "This system is being tested at just this store for the time being and it is too early to see the full results at this time or discuss any plans to expand this test".

This Sheetz location witnessed an increase in overdose deaths over the past nine years. The county had a record 144 confirmed overdose deaths since December 1, with 179 deaths tracing back to November.

The blue lights, officials said, can make it hard for IV drug users to see their veins prior to injecting a needle.
