Not a problem?

How is this not a problem? How can an European Parliament official actually say "It seems the findings are in line with findings in other public buildings; it is not a problem we are aware of at all." Did she have a straight face when she said that? If you find cocaine in your government buildings, the buildings in which laws prohibiting its use or possession are made, is that not indicative of a problem that shouldn't be explained away by the feeling of "oh, everybody does it, so it's not that bad?"

This is not to say that lawmakers were the people that actually brought in the drugs, but instead of cracking down on illegal drug use, "the parliament may look into whether the testing was legal as it was performed without its consent or knowledge."
