Could the answer to cutting down on instances of addicts using drugs be the color of a room's lighting?
The Doctors discuss how a convenience store in Pennsylvania is using blue lighting in their bathrooms in an attempt to stop people from being able to see their veins before using drugs intravenously.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon worries that while the idea might have good intentions, that it could lead to people further harming themselves. He says if someone were to inject themselves repeatedly and miss the vein it could possibly lead to a serious infection and even a loss of a limb.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry says according to research this approach is not effective at cutting down on drug use.
"If you meet an addict they will do pretty much whatever they need to do to get that high," she says.
The Doctors also note the blue lighting has been used in Europe and Canada and has had mixed results.
