Via CNN: 90 percent of U.S. bills carry traces of cocaine.

The study in question only confirms what we already knew:

Research presented this weekend reinforced previous findings that 90 percent of paper money circulating in U.S. cities contains traces of cocaine.

Much of the contamination appears to be from money-counting machines in banks.

And here are some comparative stats:

Compared with currency from Brazil, Canada, China and Japan, U.S. bills had the highest percentage of cocaine, with 90 percent of 234 bank notes contaminated. Canada followed with 85 percent and Brazil with 80 percent. China and Japan had the lowest, with 20 and 12 percent respectively.
