On Sunday, the White House grounds were suddenly evacuated due to the discovery of a mysterious package. What was initially deemed an “unknown item” has since been identified as a bag of cocaine hydrochloride, according to an audio recording from the D.C. Fire Hazmat team.
This begs the question: was cocaine found at the White House last weekend?
The precise circumstances of the incident remain unclear, with the White House offering no comment. However, the initial evacuation of the White House and the response of a Hazmat team suggest that the discovered substance was deemed dangerous and potentially hazardous.

Cocaine hydrochloride is a powder used in drug abuse or as a local anesthetic. Abusing cocaine hydrochloride can result in severe side effects and risks. What’s more peculiar is that mainstream media outlets have devoted little attention to this story, despite the severity of the incident.
Adding to the mystery is the fact that Hunter Biden, a supposedly “recovering” cocaine user, was recently at the White House for a state dinner. However, there is no evidence to suggest that the discovered cocaine hydrochloride is directly linked to Hunter Biden or the state dinner.
Social media users have attempted to explain away the presence of cocaine hydrochloride by saying that it’s a local anesthetic commonly used by doctors to numb the nostril for surgical procedures. However, this is not entirely accurate. According to the Mayo Clinic, “This medicine is to be given only by or under the direct supervision of your doctor.” Cocaine hydrochloride nasal solution is not something that could simply be found lying around the White House grounds.
The discovery of cocaine hydrochloride at the White House is a disturbing and troubling incident. While the exact circumstances are still unknown, one thing is certain: cocaine was found at the White House, and that’s a story that deserves more attention than it has been receiving.
