Darcie Hall, 36, was arrested for allegedly selling bags of heroin marked with Donald Trump’s name

Police say the marking of political names on the drugs is likely just a form of branding
A New Hampshire woman suspected of being a drug dealer was taken into custody for allegedly selling bags of heroin stamped with the Republican front-runner’s name.
Darcie Hall, 36, of Troy, New Hampshire, was stopped while driving and arrested for selling bags of heroin with Donald Trump’s name stamped on them.
Hall was taken into custody while police searched her vehicle and home and charged with selling a controlled substance.
The ‘Trump heroin’ was found dispensed into dosage-sized bags.
Hall is already on probation for a 2014 conviction of possessing of cocaine.
A family member told the Boston Globe he was ‘disgusted’ with Hall’s behavior.
He added that he has no idea why she named her drug after Trump.
This isn’t the first time a drug dealer has tried to capitalize on political momentum to sell illegal substances.
Four people were arrested for having 1,250 bags of heroin labeled ‘Obama Care’ in Massachusetts in December 2013.
Police said as far as they know, the political names are a type of ‘branding’.
Hall’s case is still under investigation, according to police in New Hampshire.
