MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Two West Virginia high school students overdosed and were hospitalized after using heroin-laced vape pens, according to Morgantown police.
Preston encouraged people to stop using vaping devices and if they suspect an issue, to get rid of them, WPXI reported.
On Monday, Morgantown police said officers were able to identify and confirm one source of the suspected pens and vaping solutions, a juvenile high school student.
