Last month we learned that a new brand of heroin has hit the streets of NYC which features a cartoon image of Edward Cullen on the packaging. This Twilight Heroin is believed to be branded as such in order to entice younger users. In that blogpost, I mentioned that back in the day I recall a bunch of ecstasy pills making the rounds in Detroit, MI that were shaped like Pokémon and Teletubbies characters. It turns out that these days, a new batch of ecstasy pills are making the rounds … police in Texas busted a guy with a bunch of ecstasy pills that were shaped like President Barack Obama, which is but one of the trendy forms of ecstasy pills that are all the rage these days:
President Barack Obama’s approval rating may be hovering in the 50 percent range, but that doesn’t mean America’s Commander-in-Chief isn’t catching on with new constituents. There is now a line of Ecstasy pills made in the image of the 44th president of the United States, according to Texas police who have snatched a batch off the streets. Ecstasy is known for a sense of elation, diminished feelings of fear and anxiety, and ability to induce a sense of intimacy with others. Perhaps a good Election Day strategy to get out the vote? A stash of the brightly colored tablets was found Monday during a south Texas traffic stop. Police in Palmview detained a driver after finding black tar heroin, cocaine, marijuana and several Ecstasy pills in the back of his car. The drugs look like a “vitamin for kids,” police spokesman Lenny Sanchez said. Police say that other Ecstasy pills they found were made to look like the cartoon characters Homer Simpson and the Smurfs. The 22-year-old driver is expected to face felony drug possession counts. Palmview is near the border with Mexico. No word on the driver’s political affiliation.
Dang … these pills really do look like children’s vitamins. I remember I used to LOVE eating Flintstones Chewable Vitamins … these ecstasy pills look just like them. As you can see in these photos, President Obama has been immortalized in pill form along with Homer J. Simpson, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Snoopy and more. It’s so crazy that this is the way that people prefer to take their drugs. I guess different strokes for different folks. Kids these days.
