Don't Sniff your cash: Nine out of 10 dollar bills test positive for cocaine

Nine out of 10 dollar bills test positive for cocaine

Monday, 17 August 2009


Up to nine out of 10 American bank notes bear traces of cocaine, research has shown. In some large US cities evidence of "dirty money" is even stronger. Analysis of bank notes from Washington DC, home to Congress and the US Presidency, were the most contaminated, with 95 per cent of them carrying minute amounts of the Schedule II (Class A in Britain) drug.

The study was the biggest ever undertaken of cocaine contamination of bank notes. Paper money can pick up cocaine particles directly from users snorting the drug through rolled up bills, or from the handling of cash during drug deals. Contamination can spread when bills are stacked together or run through counting machines.

Scientists tested bank notes from more than 30 cities in the US, Canada, Brazil, China and Japan. They found "alarming" evidence of cocaine contamination in many areas. The US and Canada had the highest levels, with an average contamination rate of between 85 per cent and 90 per cent. China and Japan had the lowest rates of 20 per cent and 12 per cent.

W. T. F?

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

(1/20/17) Just discovered this gem in my private messages from 2006:
Who is Rtael?
This guy Rtael ,brainless and ignorant, is one of the most obnoxious, arrogant and coward guys whos has been a pest in this forum for years now.Given the new anti-bully policy he'll probably be expelled soon. Observe how he tries to rally and gang others against you. Mean people like him shouldn't be allowed here. And all because he "doesn't like your attitude"!!
**Everyone should consider themselves warned!**

I think I'm more worried about the ecoli that can be on american dollar bills than the cocaine.

Coca Cola used to have some cocaine in it before it was banned in 1929 if I heard correctly

Paper has a lot of drawbacks associated with it when you're using it to print something that's going to be around for a long time and handled by a lot of different people with varying ideas of sanitation.

This is old news. I thought everyone knew it? It's such a small amount it is meaningless but it's there.

Cash is so 1999.

That's why countries should stop using paper for their notes

Australian money



Wouldn't be surprised if they had cocaine in them either, they smell kind of funky.
