One of the biggest highlights of my childhood is finding a stray five-dollar bill on the ground. It was like I had found a long-lost treasure. Looking back at that random find one day when I was a child is still a memory I have in my head. I even held on to that five-dollar bill for over a week before I spent it in case someone asked about finding it.

Nowadays, five dollars isn't much and times have changed. Finding folded-up cash on the ground could be dangerous these days. Especially if you pick the bill up, unfold it, and there is something unexpected inside of the bill.

Drugs Have Been Found in Folded Up Dollar Bills

This past weekend a resident in Lane County Kansas found a one-dollar bill in their yard. The homeowner probably thought they were a bit lucky, but a white substance spilled out upon unfolding the one-dollar bill. The resident called law enforcement and the dollar bill was confiscated after a field test revealed the substance was methamphetamine.

KDVR reached out to the Colorado State Patrol to see if similar incidents have occurred in the state of Colorado. Master Trooper Gary Cutler told KDVR that this is something to be aware of in every state. One of the most serious reasons to be wary of finding folded-up cash is the presence of fentanyl.

What is Fentanyl?

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid that is 80 to 100 times stronger than morphine and as little as two milligrams can be fatal depending on the size of the person, tolerance, and past usage of the drug.

Master Trooper Gary Cutler also said that there is a possibility that used needles could be inside folded-up dollar bills too. So the next time you find a folded-up dollar bill on the street or in a parking lot, you should probably use caution when inspecting the orphaned cash.
