Have You Sniffed Your Dollar Today?

Take out a dollar bill. Look at it. See anything funny? Chances are it may contain cocaine.

Whether it was used to actually sniff the Peruvian dancing powder or not, the residue from cocaine is so fine that when it comes in contact with other bills, money counters, or cash drawers, it can spread to the other bills. Plus, dollar bills are very fibrous, when cocaine touches the bill, it embeds itself very easliy.

So sure, there may only be a nanogram on Washington's face, but it's just one more interesting aspect to the journey our money takes. Cool, eh? That's all.
