Attention cocaine users of the world: Parents everywhere would like you to know that
changing tables are generally covered in baby poop, and we’d appreciate it if you’d think of that the next time you’re looking for a place to snort a line.
According to an informal study out of the United Kingdom, 92 percent of the more than 100 public changing tables were coated with trace amounts of cocaine. The testing was conducted by Real Radio journalists who used specialist wipes on the tables and then had them tested in a lab as part of a series to be broadcast this week called Cocaine Unwrapped.
According to the Telegraph, the UK has been named the cocaine capital of the world. The radio special talks to many cocaine addicts, some of them also parents, about how the addiction has affected their lives.
Cocaine of course can be found in trace amounts on many surfaces, most notably money. Parents would be wise to use a changing pad anytime they change a baby’s diaper in public.
The fact remains, though, that changing tables, or anywhere else for that matter, is really a bad place to do cocaine.
