ROANOKE, Va.  — Volunteers who cleaned up the roadside and woods along Mill Mountain Parkway hauled away some unusual pieces of trash, including a shopping cart, a gas tank, a boom box and a set of 8-pound dumbbells.

They also picked up 625 empty canisters of whipped topping, most likely tossed after people had used them to get high in a method called "huffing." The most likely culprits, according to drug prevention specialists, were teenagers.
