Trivia: There's Cocaine in Almost All Dollar Bills

Trace amounts of cocaine are found in 4 out of every 5 dollar bills in circulation.

The average amount of cocaine found is 16 micrograms (0.000016 gram)

I don't carry cash. It's been a problem on a vary rare occasion (when someones machine is down), but just about everywhere takes debit/credit cards anymore.
Guess this gives me yet another reason to go plastic.

Booo icky germ ridden, drug laced, easily stolen money!

According to snopes this is essentially true, but the presence of cocaine does not mean that 4 out of 5 bills have been used as a coke straw. It simply means that the drug is a very fine powder and easily spread around.

not an urban legend. ass. research.
