Well, this probably isn’t what President Obama wanted his Obamacare name printed on.
Four men have been arrested after cops searched a car that was making traffic violations, where they found 1,250 packets of heroin in the vehicle.
According to the Boston Globe, the packets were all labeled either “Obamacare” or “Kurt Cobain”, which is telling buyers what kind of drugs they are getting. Fortunately, it has no real connection to the Obamacare foundation.
The site reports:
Asked about the labels on the bags, Trooper Todd Nolan, a State Police spokesman, said, “To the best of our knowledge, it’s like branding.” He said drug dealers commonly use branding on their wares so buyers can identify where the drugs originated.
All four were arraigned in Northampton District Court, and not-guilty pleas were automatically entered for each, prosecutors said.
The driver of the vehicle has been charged with drug trafficking, conspiracy to violate drug laws, possession with intent to distribute a Class A substance, speeding, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, and failure to change lanes for an emergency vehicle.
He is currently being held on $1,000 bail, while the other passengers in the car are facing trafficking charges as well.
