Cocaine in Rome

I've just read this article that presents a profound reason for peoples love of Rome. Supposedly researchers found high concentrations of cocaine and pot among other addictive substances in the downtown area of the city of Rome.....now we know why its such an attractive tourist destination. Here are some excerpts of the article :

Researchers may have figured out what makes la vita so dolce in Rome. A report from Italy's National Research Council released Thursday found that there are traces of cocaine and cannabis in the air of the Eternal City.




"The highest concentrations of cocaine were found in the center of Rome and especially in the area of the University of La Sapienza," said Dr. Angelo Cecinato, who led the investigation.




Looks like the students at the University of La Sapienza are really stressed out :P.

Salam PH,
Hmmmmmmmmmmm interesting article. :-)

Interesting in the fact that Afghanistan has Opium which when processed chemically is produced into heroin. Moreover Opium contains a fair percentage of Morphine used for pain killers. Yet aside from U.S. Government officials not seeing a high tourist rate there. :D Those greedy boogers.

@Mani :

I really don't know the difference bro I though coke and heroin were the same :p. I know that in Tripoli they sell some expensive white powder I don't know which of them it is :-\.
