A Drug For Every Age

Thanks to the FOIA addicted drug sleuths at The Smoking Gun there can be no denying the importance of celebrity branding in the illicit drug world. These merry pranksters are not only masters of subterfuge but are unparalleled in their creative efforts to hustle black market goodies. I suppose it was only a matter of time until the President's name turned up adorning NYC back alley bindles but ladies and gentlemen, Obama heroin? Mercy. This brown sugar joins a long line of concoctions using celebrity endorsement to lure recreational drug users into really getting their freaks on.

There was the paper LSD marked with Disney's Goofy, ecstasy bearing Harry Potter's stamp of approval, bricks of Teletubbies cocaine, and green-tinted crack in recognition of St. Patrick's Day. The audacity of dope indeed. Oh, and I almost forgot the lovable Taliban's all time best seller, Bin Ladin heroin.
