Default Up To 90 Percent Of US Paper Money Contains Traces Of Cocain

Up To 90 Percent Of US Paper Money Contains Traces Of Cocaine, Study Finds




ScienceDaily (Aug. 17, 2009) You probably have cocaine in your wallet, purse, or pocket. Sound unlikely or outrageous? Think again! In what researchers describe as the largest, most comprehensive analysis to date of cocaine contamination in banknotes, scientists are reporting that cocaine is present in up to 90 percent of paper money in the United States, particularly in large cities such as Baltimore, Boston, and Detroit. The scientists found traces of cocaine in 95 percent of the banknotes analyzed from Washington, D.C., alone.

Presented at the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, the new study suggests that cocaine abuse is still widespread and may be on the rise in some areas. It could help raise public awareness about cocaine use and lead to greater emphasis on curbing its abuse, the researchers say.

The scientists tested banknotes from more than 30 cities in five countries, including the U.S., Canada, Brazil, China, and Japan, and found "alarming" evidence of cocaine use in many areas. The U.S. and Canada had the highest levels, with an average contamination rate of between 85 and 90 percent, while China and Japan had the lowest, between 12 and 20 percent contamination. The study is the first report about cocaine contamination in Chinese and Japanese currencies, they say.

"To my surprise, we're finding more and more cocaine in banknotes," said study leader Yuegang Zuo, Ph.D., of the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth. (...)

i m sure they would find a high percentage of cocaine on Euro notes as well.

I'm actually surprised the number isn't higher. All it takes is one dirty bill to sully up the rest of them in your wallet. It stands to reason that the only clean ones are the ones coming off the printing press.

Thats what I was thinking. Plus when someone is counting up their stacks with their dirty fingers it could sully up the bills.

Fuck coke. Smoke bud. I find it funny that so many people do coke, so many people smoke cigarettes and drink alcohol... and SO many peoples' lives are fucked because of these drugs. Yet somehow Marijuana is the bad one of the bunch.

^ Marijuana does have it's side effects, and I smoke weed so no bashing here. Not only are traces of coke found on our bills but contaminated with germs and whatnot.
