Well, now we know what’s in the water supply at the New York Times:

President Barack Obama’s approval rating may be hovering in the 50 percent range, but that doesn’t mean America’s Commander-in-Chief isn’t catching on with new constituents.

There is now a line of Ecstasy pills made in the image of the 44th president of the United States, according to Texas police who have snatched a batch off the streets.

Ecstasy is known for a sense of elation, diminished feelings of fear and anxiety, and ability to induce a sense of intimacy with others.

Perhaps a good Election Day strategy to get out the vote?

A stash of the brightly colored tablets was found Monday during a south Texas traffic stop.

Police in Palmview detained a driver after finding black tar heroin, cocaine, marijuana and several Ecstasy pills in the back of his car.

The drugs look like a “vitamin for kids,” police spokesman Lenny Sanchez said.

I think we can safely say that this is first drug that looks like the president;  I can’t recall reading of flappers in the 1920s popped “Coolidges” to stay awake all night doing the Lindy, or JFK-shaped pills for extra vim and/or vigah.
