 Britain- Cocaine Capital of Europe With 11% Banknotes Tainted With The Drug

11% of British notes in circulation tested positive for traces of cocaine, according to tests carried out by 15 police forces. An official inquiry into the use of cocaine carried out by the Home Office's advisory council for the misuse of drugs (ACMD) links longer pub hours to the rise in cocaine use.

Up to 70% of notes seized from drug dealers tested positive for cocaine, often rolled to snort the drug.

The finding shows that use of cocaine powder in Britain is the highest in Europe, even more than US and Australia.
