Don't Swallow The Water

How much cocaine do these people do? A study published in the journal European Health and reported by the BBC says that Italian scientists found ‘found large quantities of a cocaine by-product in a river in northern Italy.”

This means that the river Po, which follows through the aptly named Po Valley, home to about five million people, “was found to be carrying the equivalent of nearly 4kg (8.8lb) of cocaine daily.” Daily!

The chemical that they tested got into the system through the “urine of drug users.” This is a lot of urine and a lot more drug users.
