Drug residue found on minister’s money

Toews's $20 had traces of cocaine

Public Safety Minister Vic Toews was busted with a cocaine-laced $20 bill Tuesday during a tour of border security facilities at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. An officer with the Canada Border Services Agency assured Toews the doped bill was nothing unusual. The drug trade is a cash business; many bills carry drug residue. In fact, border officials don’t usually test money for dope, as passports and luggage are considered more reliable.
