A new test by the radio station Radio24syv has showed that cocaine is being ingested at the majority of upper-secondary educational institutions (gymnasiums) in the Greater Copenhagen area.

Radio24syv took drug-wipe samples from the toilets of 12 gymnasiums in the Greater Copenhagen area and found cocaine residue in nine of them.

“Cocaine has made a huge comeback,” Pernille Nordby, a substance abuse councillor at the abuse portal, told Radio24syv.

“Cocaine used to be limited to certain circles, but as it has become less expensive and more accessible, it has become a normal party drug among the youth. And it’s not just a big city phenomenon.”

99 percent accurate
Radio24syv’s tests were undertaken during afternoon hours on Monday, Thursday and Friday.

The drug-wipe tests are considered to be 98-99 percent accurate.
