So here's the deal, if you see a folded up dollar bill on the ground...DO NOT PICK IT UP. In Perry, Tn. they had two separate situations take place where there was a folded up dollar bill on the floor of a gas station. In each situation the person picked up, and unfolded the dollar bill to find a white powder substance inside. After lab tests were done, it was found that the powder substance was meth and fentanyl. Touching fentanyl call have a DEADLY reaction when it comes in contact with your skin.
