    Cocaine use in Britain so widespread it is being found in drinking water

    I wonder if it's any coincidence that the British girls (birds) have gotten very "loose" as of late?
    Traces of cocaine can be found in our drinking water, tests have shown
    Inspections of tap water discovered metabolised form of the illegal drug
    Researchers said the levels were so low they posed no danger to health
    But they demonstrate how widespread the use of cocaine has become
    Nearly 700,000 people aged 16 to 59 estimated to take drug every year
    Inspections of tap water at four different sites found a metabolised form of the illegal drug, which showed it had already passed through the human body.

    Well-publicised tests in the past have found traces of cocaine on nearly every banknote in circulation, in toilets in the House of Commons and at two thirds of Cambridge colleges.

    But being able to find traces of cocaine in tap water, even after stringent purification processes, demonstrates how common the drug has become.
    Benzoylecgonine, the form of cocaine that is generated once the drug has been processed by the body, was found in tests at four sites by the Drinking Water Inspectorate.

    It is the same compound that is searched for in urine-based drug tests for cocaine.

    Steve Rolles, from the drug policy think tank Transform, told The Sunday Times that the findings were an indication of the scale of the use of the drug in Britain today.

    ‘We have the near highest level of cocaine use in western Europe,’ he said.

    ‘It has also been getting cheaper and cheaper at the same time as its use has been going up.’

    Cocaine is the only major drug for which use has increased overall since 1996, with its falling price thought to be a major reason for its prevalence.

    Now, the drug costs around 40 per gram in Britain, compared to as much as 115 in the U.S..

    While in the 1980s and 1990s it was seen as a drug of the wealthy and fashionable, it is now widely taken by people of every class and profession - and even by schoolchildren.

    The UN Office on Drugs and Crime estimates that one in 20 British teenagers aged 15 and 16 have tried cocaine.

    Instead of a stiff upper lip the Britt's will all have a numb upper lip

    Charlie Mackenzie: Hey Mom, I find it interesting that you refer to the Weekly World News as, "The paper." The paper contains facts.

    May Mackenzie: This paper contains facts. And this paper has the eighth highest circulation in the whole wide world. Right? Plenty of facts. "Pregnant man gives birth." That's a fact.
