Indiana authorities revealed that drug traffickers appear to be using an image of President Donald Trump to brand ecstasy pills.

According to a news release, State Police conducted several drug raids over a six-day period concluding on Friday, making 129 arrests in northern Indiana and recovering an apparent photo describe as orange “Trump-shaped ecstasy pills.”

According to the Evansville Courier and Press, the pills are stamped with an image of Trump’s face with the words “great again,” an apparent reference to the President’s campaign slogan “Make America Great Again.”

Traffickers use marketing techniques such as producing bizarre shaped or colored drugs to encourage users to purchase more drugs.

Authorities didn’t provide further details, including how many of the pills were seized.

Officials said cocaine, LSD, and other drugs were also seized during the operation.
