20$ high???????????

So I'm listening to the radio this morning and they were saying how new research shows that 80% of all twenty dollar bills have cocaine residue on them. Enough to sniff and get high

seems most of our bills have been rolled up and shoved up some crackheads nose for a blow. Scary thought

I know that MTV has done the show on this rumor but I saw a fox investigative reports about a year or so ago that took some rumors out for a spin to see the validity. Now I dont remember the amounts of drugs in a $20 bill but there is drug residue on almost all bills. Enough to get high on, I dont think so.

However they did find out that paper currency is a place for all sorts of bacteria and viruses to live since the paper is so porus and changes hands so much. Money is actually the way most people get sick with a cold or flu. They did say that people should wash their hands a lot more often since there is a high number of times you touch your money.

Well, since $20 bills are placed in register drawers and wallets with other $20 bills, it seems they could easily have trace amounts, but why only $20s? And enough to get high???

Hell, if you're going to worry, think about where many of the $1 bills have been!!!

If I respond to that it would be the biggest FOUL this board has seen.


The story was that 20's were the bill of choice for guys who do the blow I guess. I'm not sure but that's what the story was. I thought it was pretty funny. Tomorrow I may sniff all the twenties in my wallet on the way to work and see if I remember coming in.

Interesting topic.. I think I can contribute something here


Being that I work in the Federal Reserve Bank, where I process currency, I can attest to how filthy money is. My hands are constantly black from the grime of the bills. I have hand sanitizer that I use every half-hour or so to keep my hands moist and kill some germs.

As far as the cocaine residue on $20's.. let me give you some insight... At the Fed (where ALL of your money is bound to end up sooner or later), we use the SAME MACHINES to process all the denominations (1,2,5,10,20,50,100), and the machines get a quick once over with the vacuum and air gun between shifts (and sometimes during a shift when dirty money causes jams). Not only that, but the singler mechanism is pneumatic (which means air is blown onto the top of a stack of bills to single them into the transport). This sort of cleans the money a bit. There is so much dust and debris, that it really is a rather dirty environment. So that means that ALL currency will have residue on it. Now there is such a small amount that if you were to start sniffing bills, you would most likely get pneumonia or some other respiratory disease faster than you would get high.

Think of it this way... a LOT more americans wipe their asses than sniff cocaine. Some people don't wash after either, so guess what that means. I suspect that there is more fecal and urine residue on currency than any kind of drug.

Still wanna sniff that $20?

Now I'm more grossed out than normal. Gee thanks. I think I'm going to go sanatize myself from the inside out with lots of gin.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
