According to a new report, cocaine is on tap in the water supply of Great Britain.

Use of the drug is so popular in the U.K., that scientists have found traces of it in the drinking water, according to a report in May 10 issue of The Sunday Times.

Small amounts of the illegal substance were found, despite the water going through an “intensive” treatment process.

Officials say that despite the findings, the trace amounts of coke aren’t likely to harm anyone.
