"The notices come out every year," said Woodbridge police Lt. Roy Hoppock....

No one seems to know where the latest warning originated....

The letter warns of a form of decal called "blue star." The drug is distributed on a small sheet of paper containing blue stars, each about the size of a pencil eraser and soaked with LSD....
