Is the drug problem in the US greater than we realize?

A research study conducted recently found that between 85% and 95% of bills circulating in the United States have traces of cocaine on them.




That is a 20% jump from a similar study done in 2007. Yuegang Zuo of the University of Massachusetts said that the rise may be related to the financial meltdown in the last few years.


The National Geographic article can be found here.


I am surprised that no one has come up with a business to scrape the bills and recycle the cocaine. Or may be it has already been done and we don’t know about it :-)


But seriously there is probably a much bigger drug problem in the US than most people realize. Cocaine can be addictive and has side effects that include increased heart rate, higher blood pressure and breathing rates. Anxiety, restlessness, inability to sleep and loss of appetite leading to weight loss is usual with cocaine use. Cold sweats, convulsions, vomiting and nausea also occur. The more serious effects of cocaine are heart attack, stoke and convulsions. After a brief high a user may experience deep depressions.
