A new study has found that almost 90% of all paper money in the United States has traces of cocaine on it.
The study tested banknotes from 30 big cities in five countries – United States, Canada, Brazil, China, and Japan and the results were “alarming”.
U.S. and Canadian currency had the highest cocaine contamination rates of between 85 and 90 percent, while Chinese and Japanese currency had the lowest, between 12 and 20 percent contamination.
“Scientists have known for years that paper money can become contaminated with cocaine during drug deals and directly through drug use, such as snorting cocaine through rolled bills. Contamination can also spread to banknotes not involved in the illicit drug culture, because bills are processed in banks’ currency-counting machines.”
So that’s why receiving money makes me happy!
