I know the answer, I know the answer!
A senior analyst at the FSS, the largest provider of forensic services in the UK on behalf of police forces, says traces of the drug can be found on any bank note regardless of its geographical location.
It takes just two weeks for a new note to pick up the drug, either because it is handled by someone who has used cocaine recently or it is contaminated by contact with other currency.
It isn\’t that everyone in the country is now using cocaine. It\’s that every bank note in the country now goes through note counters and ATM machines. The machines become contaminated with traces from those notes that have been in direct contact and then pass this on to every note they count or dispense.
Won\’t stop the authorities from confiscating cash which is so contaminated as \”proceeds of drugs crime\” of course.
