    I'll be really curious as to the source bank. Point that drives me crazy, why are they always saying, "There doesn't seem to be a terror link here." ???

    Anyone can roll quarters. I'd guess it didn't come from a bank to start with.

    I remember a bulletin when I was flying an EMS helicopter to all first responders.
    I think it came from the CDC, but I honestly don’t recall, maybe some other agency FBI whatever. Anyway, drug dealers were using Ricin as a trap for police etc. An effort to slow confiscation of cocaine I guess.

    In the article, says 'non-local bank' was the source of the rolls...

    Mom and Dad went and got her laundry money, I did the same. My son still has unopened rolls from last year.

    I understand, then again college kids NEVER mess with drugs, right?

    It very well may have made it into a bank and then given out again. Do they open the rolls anymore to count them if they're deposited, or just weigh them? :dunno:

    My part time job comes in useful: Open the rolls and machine count. ;)

    Ricin isn't a 'drug' in the sense that college kids would be dealing with. Seems she went to do laundry, opened the roll and the powder got on her hands, as noted above.

    I know it's not a drug, please refer to my post on the Bulletin for first responders. The drug world is using it, not to get high but to KILL the COPS. Seems likely that a roll meant for one thing may have just found it's way somewhere else by accident. Who knows?

    Nothing taken from customers, is allowed to stay in a seal: Not rolls of coin or strapped cash. Always must be opened in view of the customer.

    That makes it look more like a drug thing then. Doesn't it?
    Is the kid going to be upfront and admit it? LOL.
