93% of Hashish sold in Spain is contaminated by faecal bacteria

Spanish researchers have found that 93% of all the hashish sold in Spain is contaminated with the E. Coli bacteria that can cause, cramps, diarrhoea and vomiting.

Scientists in Madrid analysed samples of the drug being sold on the streets of the Spanish capital and found that almost all of the 90 samples tested smelled bad and tested positive for faecal matter.

They also found that 10% of the samples had aspergillus, a fungal species found in manure that can cause allergic reactions and respiratory infections.

The report from the Alfonso X el Sabio University and the Complutense University of Madrid was published in the Forensic Science International journal.
