Looks like drug dealers are fans of B.O.’s ‘Change’. Perhaps they’re hoping for pardons in case they get nabbed?
Massachusetts State Police took four people into custody Friday morning after discovering 1,250 individual bags of heroin marked “Obama Care,” authorities said.
According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, a trooper spotted a vehicle in Hatfield, Mass., with several violations. Police called on a police K9, Frankie, who located the heroin in the vehicle.
Lt. Daniel Richard, a police spokesman, said each bag of heroin can command anywhere from $7 to $20 in street value. Though this is the first time Richard has seen “Obama Care” stamp on a drug bag, but similar stamps can be used by drug producers as a branding.
Obama’s name and likeness have turned up on other drugs such as LSD and ecstasy pills since his election in 2008, according to Politicker.
