Drug Bust Yields Bags of Heroin Labeled 'Obamacare'

So that's what will replace all those lost doctors!


Massachusetts State Police took four people into custody Friday morning after discovering 1,250 individual bags of heroin marked "Obama Care," authorities said.

According to a post on the department's Facebook page, a trooper spotted a vehicle in Hatfield, Mass., with several violations. Police called on a police K9, Frankie, who located the heroin in the vehicle. 

Lt. Daniel Richard, a police spokesman, said each bag of heroin can command anywhere from $7 to $20 in street value. Though this is the first time Richard has seen "Obama Care" stamp on a drug bag, but similar stamps can be used by drug producers as a branding.
