Blow Your Bugle: Cocaine in the UK

Everyone knows that New York is the city that never sleeps but recent revelations on cocaine usage in London suggest otherwise.

A study commissioned by and published in the Sunday Telegraph reports that a shocking 80,000 lines or 2 kilos of the white powder are dumped into the Thames each day after passing through the bodies of England's finest and also sewage treatment plants. This number reflects the efforts of an estimated 250,000 people, or 4% of London's population, who blow through a combined total of 150,000 rails a day.

Tissue, please?

Apparently Kate Moss and her cohorts are not the only ones awake at night. Doctors and the British government are also losing sleep -- over the fact that the newly estimated usage number is fifteen times higher than the official figure from Home Office.
