You might end up laundering drug money Wink

A large percentage of U.S. currency bears traces of cocaine.

A single bill used to snort cocaine or otherwise mingled with the drug can contaminate an entire cash drawer. When counting and sorting machines (which fan the bills, and thus the cocaine) are factored in, it's no wonder that so much of the currency now in circulation wouldn't pass any purity tests.

True story, that.

Some years ago I had several friends who worked in a bank cash vault. They all wore bank-furnished surgical gloves for protection against germs and eager drug dogs. Happy

Counting and sorting the bills. Never thought of that. When the bills get fanned,...Out comes the Coke. Maybe enough to get a buzz on eh. Happy
