Florida Man August 20, 2019: Ecstasy Pills, Florida Man Style
Ecstasy has been on and off a popular party drug. It is known to give you a happy and carefree attitude. While it is most well-known among ravers and party-goers, the drug can be popular among other groups. Apparently, that includes Florida Man.
Florida Man was arrested for possession of ecstasy on August 20th, 2019. He had five pills that were found hidden inside his home air vent.
Police found them as they were responding to a call for an overdose at the home. Police also found a powder that was later identified as a dangerous drug known as Fentanyl.
Okay, a little bit of drugs isn’t that far out of the normal and wouldn’t normally make a Florida Man story but this was a first for the police department.
Seizing drugs with shapes or logos isn’t too uncommon, it is a method of branding. But the police say they have never found drugs in the shape of these Florida Man’s pills.
They were all shaped like Donald Trump’s head with a stamped Trump NL on them.
Florida Man was then arrested for drug possession. We really hope that was the last Donald Trump pills out there, we don’t want that going to the orange man’s head.
