‘Surprised’ Scientists Find Cocaine, Ketamine in Shrimps From UK Rivers

According to Geek.com, Scientists have found cocaine, ketamine, and pesticides in freshwater shrimps when testing UK rivers for chemicals.
A new study between King’s College London and University of Suffolk, and published in Environment International, looked at the exposure of wildlife, to different micropollutants and the levels of these compounds in the animals in 15 different sites in the UK.
The researchers, who found the findings “surprising,” said cocaine was found in all samples tested. Other illicit drugs, such as ketamine, and pesticides were also widespread in the shrimp that were collected.
The team collected samples from five rural catchments, which made the findings even more surprising.
