No lie: If you like your Obamacare heroin, you cannot keep your Obamacare heroin.
The Massachusetts State Police announced on Facebook the arrest of four people Friday after “1,250 individual bags” of heroin, labeled “Obamacare,” were found in a car during a routine traffic stop.
According to department spokesman Lt. Daniel Richards, “most times when sealed bags of heroin are found, they are stamped with a branding so that the strain can be identified,” Politico reported.
“I think it’s whatever the person decides to put on it,” he said. “So if the junkies who are buying them go, ‘Wow, that Obamacare stuff was really good.’”
Which just might be the only time anyone would ever use “Obamacare” and “good” in the same sentence.
The Politico article cited a 2012 article from Politicker noting how “Obama-branded drugs had become popular” over the years since the 2008 election.
The Commander-in-Chief’s name and face has been slapped on a wide variety of contraband products including ecstasy pills, LSD tabs, heroin baggies and a popular strain of medical marijuana.
