Cocaine in South Florida is so pervasive
“You may not snort cocaine. You may not know a single soul who sells it, or buys it. You may never even have laid eyes upon the illegal powdery white substance. But odds are you come in daily contact with it. So pervasive is cocaine in South Florida that microscopic traces of the drug can be found on many, if not most, of the currency circulating in the area. The money you get when you cash your check at the bank, the bills you exchange at the grocery store, the $5 you pay the baby sitter”
It has been established by toxicological testing that cocaine in South Florida is so pervasive that microscopic traces of the drug can be found on much of the currency circulating in the area.
