Authorities are reporting an alarming new trend saying meth addicts are using wasp spray as an alternative to the drug. Three people have overdosed so far.

KLFY reports Police in West Virginia say it seems meth users are inhaling wasp spray as a quick fix when they can't find meth or can't afford it. It is believed to have contributed to three overdoses in the area.
