Cocaine is a drug that is everywhere… in the UK alone, use of the drug had risen dramatically in recent years. And use of the drug is not just restricted to homes. Owners and managers of pub, clubs and public areas are all having to be vigilant and to make sure that their premise are not being used for public drug use. Using cocaine wipes in public places has become an interesting and informative exercise. It has allowed us to determine where drug use is taking place. Many journalists now have taken to the streets to find out if cocaine use is happening on their doorstep!
In this article, we look at some of the places where cocaine use has been discovered, just by using cocaine wipes!
National History Museum, Dublin
Irish radio show, Newstalk Breakfast recently carried out an investigation into drug use in Dublin, using cocaine wipes to determine which pubs and public buildings had been used for drug taking. A small team used our cocaine wipes to test surfaces around the city. Because cocaine is a big problem in pubs and clubs, they tested 15 drinking establishments. They also tested 5 public places.
The results were interesting. 10 of the 15 bars were found to have traces of cocaine after the toilets were tested. 2 of the 5 public buildings that were tested also gave a positive result. These were the Natural History Museum and Heuston Railway Station.
Norwich Bus Station
Alan Partridge would not be happy to hear that cocaine use seems to be rife in his home town bus station. We provided cocaine wipes to a journalist from the Eastern Daily Press so that they could check where drugs such as cocaine were being used locally. As well as the bus station, the report found cocaine residue in the cathedral, railway station, magistrates court and the Forum.
Yes, even the home of British government does not seem to be safe from illegal use of cocaine. Once again, Zoom Testing was in contact with a journalist that was investigating the use of drugs in parliamentary buildings. His article was published in June 2019 and showed evidence of drug use in bathrooms at the home of our government, all by using cocaine wipes.
Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen
Gordon Ramsay on Cocaine was a ground breaking documentary which appeared on TV in 2017. In the show, the celebrity chef exposed the wide use of cocaine that is occurring in public places. He even found traces of the drug in his own restaurant!
