>The largest study of banknotes has found that 95% of dollar bills in Washington DC bear traces of the illegal drug cocaine.The figure for the US capital is up 20% over two years.
Researchers at the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth tested notes from more than 30 cities worldwide. They say the rise observed in the US may be due to increased drug use caused by higher stress levels linked to the global economic downturn.
Lol. So apparently times are so tough, the cosmopolitian bureaucracy of D.C., without the pressure of job losses are turning to cocaine to escape the pressure of making up figures.
