RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - The police department in Rutland, Vt., is organizing a discussion about synthetic drugs such as bath salts and the practice of huffing to get high.
The Rutland Herald reports a Vermont State Police drug recognition expert and a panel of drug treatment and prevention experts are planning to gather Thursday at 6 p.m. at the PEG-TV studio in Rutland.
The discussion is open to the public.
Earlier this year, high school student Carly Ferro was killed as she was coming out of the Rutland Discount Food and Liquidation Center, where she worked.
Police said the accident was caused by an incapacitated driver believed to have been huffing from aerosol cans.
