But not for the reason you think...It’s less shocking a fact than we first
perceive it to be because the underlying assumption — that every bill
bearing traces of cocaine got that way through having been used to inhale
lines of cocaine — is false.

Contrary to our first thought upon encountering this interesting little
fact, that trace amounts of cocaine turn up on approximately four of every
five bills in circulation doesn’t mean the now-contaminated currency was at
one time used to snort coke or passed through the dope-laden paws of seedy
characters. Rather, the drug is easily conveyed from one bill to another
because cocaine in powdered form is extremely fine.

When a cocaine-contaminated bill is processed through a sorting or counting
machine, traces of the drug are easily passed to other bills in the same
batch. ATMs serve to spread tiny amounts of cocaine to nearly all the
currency they distribute, as do the counting machines used in banks and
