Federal agents took down a large-scale Ecstasy dealer last month. And the undercover federal agent was very specific about what he wanted from that dealer: 150,000 extra thick tablets. They had to be yellow. And they had to carry the “Obama” logo.
Yes, you read that correctly. Some Presidents get their faces on stamps, some get them on coins, some get them on mountain sides, but President Obama gets his on illegal party drugs.
The Smoking Gun reports the party drug particulars:
While law enforcement agents have previously seized Ecstasy pills bearing the president’s likeness from street level dealers, this appears to be the first time that a federal undercover operation specifically sought out Obama-branded narcotics from a suspected large-scale trafficker.
The ICE probe resulted in the arrest of several men, including Harjinder Brar, who pleaded guilty last month to a felony drug conspiracy charge. Agents seized 84 pounds of Ecstasy when they busted Brar and another man at the Starbucks in Bellingham. The pills, recovered from a van, were found in 26 heat-sealed plastic bags, according to investigators.
Now you might as yourself, as we did, what Ecstasy does and why drug dealers would choose to stamp President Obama’s face on illegal party drugs.

Physical Ecstasy side effects brought on by use of the drug include muscle tension, involuntary teeth clenching, nausea, blurred vision, rapid eye movement, faintness, and chills or sweating. Increases in heart rate and blood pressure can also be experienced by Ecstasy users…
It all makes sense now. Those are exactly the same symptoms we’ve felt since January 20, 2009.
