Don't remember the details, which company did which .... maybe someone else does.
Do you mean Schweizerhalle? That was quite a big accident with consequences on prevention measures.

They do not have to differentiate the piss, but they could take in account how much piss there actually is. Amsterdam has much more piss per resident than Eindhoven, so it is only normal that it ranks higher, even tho the usage by the residents themselves might be higher in Eindhoven.
You know... the thing is that your argument does not match the actual lists in the article. Amsterdam is trailing on place 10 in the speed category. Long behind pretty much every village in Belgium and the not so interesting parts of Germany.

My argument holds up since they do state that every thousand of residents in Amsterdam use a certain amount while not taking into account the usage of people who do not live in the town. Amsterdam has a huge influx of people from outside the town so it is only to be expected that due to the usage of these people inside Amsterdam the residents of Amsterdam themselves have a lower usage than what is presented to be their usage. Eindhoven has on percentage a much lower amount of people from outside town visiting it but a higher pollution due to the production facilities in the direct environment of it, so when corrected it might be that Eindhoven on the list of MDMA could go up, or down.

When corrected to actual usage by the people living in such towns shifts might and should occur in the list.

Please tell me where exactly do I go wrong?

Re: 50% of the top 10 drug capitals are in Switzerland ..

A tourist flushes the toilet the same way as a resident, which should normalize the amount of piss indipendent of how many tourists there are. Tourists usually use more water overall which might dilute it even more... The question is what population numbers they actually use.
Taking samples over the year would also be better.

I would hope the countries in this study don't have rainwater ending up in the wastewater.

They corrected for residues from factories by:

Enantiomeric profiling is an analytical chemistry technique used to determine if studied drugs in wastewater originate from consumption or direct disposal (eq. production waste). It is based on the fact that chiral molecules (if only one chiral centre is present) exist as two enantiomers (opposite forms) which are non-superimposable mirror images of each other. As the enantiomeric ratio will change after human metabolism, the enantiomeric fraction can be used to determine whether the studied drugs in wastewater originate from consumption.

At least some of them do. Netherlands and Belgium for example.

So. I was always wondering why the fish in the Limmatt seemed to swim around aimlessly in circles.

What would you do if you found yourself in a non-existing river?!

Hope that you guys before this post had fun.
Or maybe it's why you're living in CH according to recent threads?

Re: 50% of the top 10 drug capitals are in Switzerland ..

Multiple Swiss cities on the MDMA & cocaine list......I think the Swiss tourism board have been working overtime to find a new way to attract tourists into the country?


However, I might stop loosely referencing that we have "plenty of white stuff" around this winter....

Re: 50% of the top 10 drug capitals are in Switzerland ..

These " grass" shops are springing up like the plague. Might as well just smoke the clippings when I mow the lawn next time. Alot cheaper than what these criminals want for their " grass ". Has anybody tried this stuff?

They grow tons of grass for cows like you, what else? Hemp was smoked by the farmers for ages, nothing new.
