Obamacare stamped heroin seized

Police in western Massachusetts arrested four people after they discover over a thousand packets of heroin stamped with the words “Obamacare” and “Kurt Cobain.”

State police in Hatfield, Massachusetts report arresting four individuals with possession of large amounts of heroin during a traffic stop.

A trooper was alerted to their car while on a traffic stop in Northampton. The car passed the trooper on Route 91 and he noticed several violations. He was able to catch up and discovered the driver is not licensed and is acting suspicious. That's when the trooper brought out his K9.

The state police K9 found 1,250 bags of heroin. The packets were all stamped “Obamacare” (The Affordable Care Act), and “Kurt Cobain” (former singer of Nirvana).

It's nothing out of the ordinary to find shipments of illegal drugs stamped with numbers, symbols or funky nick names. Police say the reason is that the stamp is a code to identify the source or owner of the illegal goods. Like most, Massachusetts state police have seen these packages regularly, but they've never seen terms so widely familiar before.

The heroin was seized and all four individuals were charged with heroin trafficking.
