German police may just have found the weirdest Donald Trump related merchandise to date. And though it features the recognizable orange glow of the 45th president, it seems unlikely Trump would find them as tremendous as most things that bear his name.
The item branded with the Trump name and face? A humongous drug stash seized by German authorities on Saturday. Five thousand ecstasy pills to be exact.
And the selling point of the illegal drug, listed in the high risk end of the U.N.'s classification of addictive substances, is an unusual one—every pill is shaped like Trump's head, completel with large overcomb and pouty face stamped on the front, and his name emblazoned on the back in all caps.
Ecstasy is widely sold illegally across Europe and often taken by young partygoers for the feelings of euphoria it can provide. Police in Osnabruck found thousands of the pills in the back of a van while completing a road check on Saturday night.
The vehicle was a van registered in Austria driven by a 51-year-old man. He had his teenage son, a 17-year-old, with him and had traveled from the Netherlands, according to German magazine Der Spiegel.
They were traveling toward the city of Hanover in the region of Lower Saxony. Police have arrested both men. They had claimed to have been trying to buy a vehicle in the Netherlands, according to local media. Police suspect the presidential pills may have originated in the Netherlands.
Illegal drugs shaped like the leader of the free world turned up in the U.K. earlier this year. The very similar-looking drugs came from Amsterdam and had high levels of MDMA, according to British media reports. The pills have also popped up on the dark web, where they are being sold under the Trump-like slogan: "Trump makes partying great again."
The total street value of the stash seized in Germany is estimated at €39,000 ($46,000). It would have cost €11,000 ($13,000) to purchase the tablets to sell on, so would've made a yuuuuuge profit.
