Obamacare heroin: 1,000 bags of heroin found, labeled as Health Care Act in ink

Obamacare heroin was recently discovered and retrieved by law enforcement officers in a massive raid that yielded over 1,000 bags of the drug. While the heroin was in fact labeled in red ink with the nickname of the Affordable Care Act, the two have nothing directly in common. The Inquisitr reports this Friday, Dec. 20, 2013, how the police came across a serious drug find behind what initially seemed to be only a bad joke.

The Obamacare heroin raid was accomplished earlier this week by the Massachusetts State Police. While the Affordable Care Act certainly hasn’t condoned this attempted drug transportation, officials nonetheless made a huge drug bust after locating roughly 1,000 bags stuffed with heroin. The white packages had been oddly marked in red ink with the word — you guessed it — “Obamacare.”

Other bags police came across were also said to have been titled with “Affordable Care Act” and even “Kurt Cobain heroin.” For those who don’t know of the legendary rocker’s connection with the drug, Cobain had a longstanding addiction to heroin, so if the inking was meant to be a joke, it was certainly a cruel one.

Adds the press release:

"There’s even more Obamacare heroin for the public to hear about this week. Police also discovered the conspiracy after they stopped Tyler Robenstein, Marquese Jones, Sherod Green, and Ashley Beaulieu in their car. The trunk was stuffed with 1,250 more bags of heroin again labeled inexplicably with the nickname of the Affordable Care Act.

After a potential laugh, these Obamacare drug dealers were officially accused with “trafficking in heroin, conspiracy to violate the drugs laws, possession to distribute a Class A substance, speeding, unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle and failure to change lanes for an emergency vehicle.”

Preliminary reports from police assume that these heroin dealers are using code names to identify their products in an attempt to prevent law enforcement interference, but “Obamacare” doesn’t seem to be a particularly effective one.
