Researchers dipped their hands on sewage to see which drugs were most popularly used in EU cities — and later revealed that most cities did not past the lab test.


The drug test of 42 major EU cities was done by the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology not only to see which drugs were popular in which cities. It also helped measure dangerous addiction levels and the rise in use of specific drugs.
