90% of Dollar bills in circulation in the U.S. contains traces of cocaine on them, informs CNN article. The researcher says that it doesn't mean that all these bills were used for consuming the drugs directly, but that some of them could be contaminated when they contact with the other bills that were used for this purpose. However, 90% is still a lot, i mean it is way too much!
Isn't it shocking that the most powerful country in the world has this result?
What do you think about it? Do you think it is why there are so many social problems?
For a country that spends billions of Dollars on fighting drug traffiking, it seems a little hipocrite.

Wow. That is a lot. And the U.S. definitely has a drug problem, but I don't think that this statistic means that we're hypocritical, it just supports the argument that the war on drugs isn't very effective.

Can you link to the original article?
