    Baggie of Coke Found In NASA Shuttle Facility
    http://www.wftv.com/news/22238586/detail.html

    Jan. 2010

    BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. -- NASA is launching a full investigation after a
    baggie of cocaine was found in one of its shuttle processing facilities. Shuttle workers are now being tested for drug use.

    After the shuttle's return from a mission, they each go into one of the
    tan buildings at Kennedy Space Center, the orbiter processing facilities. The cocaine was found in the one where Discovery was being prepped.

    Not just anyone can get into the hangars where the space shuttle's are
    prepped for their next missions. Workers have to swipe electronic badges to get in and, with that in mind, NASA officials are drug testing about 200 employees and contractors who investigators know were inside
    Discovery's hangar just before a small bag of cocaine was found in plain view by a worker and turned over to security.

    "It was on the ground, outside a restroom," NASA spokesman Allard Beutel said.

    The plastic bag with a small amount of the drug was found Tuesday
    morning. By Wednesday, workers were being tested.

    "We have zero margin for error and you are talking about human
    spaceflight stuff. People have to have their heads in the game." Beutel said.

    NASA's contracted security force is conducting the investigation.

    Workers are trained to pay attention to details and watch out for
    foreign debris. NASA officials say they don't know whether any workers
    were high on drugs on the job, but they are now reviewing the work done
    on Discovery to make sure the spaceship wasn't compromised.

    "NASA and it's contractors have a zero-tolerance policy for that very
    reason and most people, the vast majority
    of people, take it very seriously!" Beutel said.

    Bricks of cocaine have washed ashore at neighboring Cape Canaveral Air
    Force Station before, but this is the first time anyone can remember
    where an illegal drug was discovered in a restricted area where a space
    shuttle is being worked on.

    NASA officials don't believe the incident or the ongoing investigations
    will have any impact on the upcoming mission, but if they find the person who brought the cocaine into the shuttle facility they stand to lose their job and will face criminal prosecution.

    I think acid would be a better drug while you're up in space. You'd see little green men everywhere. lol

    How do you snort cocaine in outer space?
    I mean it's powder!
    Do they make a paste? Or a nasal spray?
    Do they have a Nasa dealer prepping there kit? lol
