Trump-Shaped Ecstasy Tabs Seized In US

Drug traffickers appear to be using US President Donald Trump's image to brand their illegal wares.

Police in Indiana say they've made 129 arrests in a series of drug busts across the state's north and have included a photo of what they say are "Trump-shaped ecstasy pills".

The orange pills are stamped with a face and on the back are the words "great again", an apparent reference to Trump's campaign slogan: 'Make America Great Again'.

Traffickers at times use uniquely shaped and coloured drugs as a marketing technique to encourage buyers to return for more.

Friday's release doesn't provide details, including how many of the pills were seized.

The six-day operation in June involved traffic stops by state and city police, as well as sheriff's departments. LSD, cocaine and other drugs were also seized.
