Ba-Smack Hussein Obama

Heroin dealers in upstate New York were selling their product under an "OBAMA" brand name.

Cops in upstate New York found that drug dealers were selling their heroin under an "Obama" brand name, perhaps capitalizing on inauguration excitement among users.

The glassine envelopes containing heroin were stamped with the label "OBAMA" in red ink, making the new president the latest famous figure to serve as brand names for drugs according to site The Smoking Gun.

The site reports that other celebrity drug brands include Harry Potter Ecstasy, bin Laden heroin, Teletubbies cocaine, and green-tinted crack for St. Patrick's Day, when Guiness just isn't doing it for you.
