Olympic Ecstasy - Not Official Merchandise

January 5, 2010

In December, Vancouver police seized 107,000 ecstasy pills stamped with the Olympic rings. (Apparently worth over $1 Million on the street!!)

What I find interesting is on this site (http://www.straight.com/article-274830/vancouver/vancouver-police-seize-ecstasy-pills-stamped-olympic-rings) they have to write "These ecstasy pills aren't official Olympic merchandise." No... really!??!

The arrested men face drug possession charges. They could also be sued for trademark violation under a temporary federal law that prohibits the unauthorized commercial use of Olympic emblems, including the five rings.

It's hard to believe that people do stuff like this. It really boggles the mind.
