“Twilight” Heroin Drug Baggies
Box office gold isn’t the only heavy weight Twilight mania is moving these days — just ask the dope dealers of New York City! Several hundred heroin dime baggies — priced less than a six-pack of beer and stamped with an animated Robert Pattinson — were seized during a recent drug bust in West Hempstead, Long Island.
According to Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Special Agent in Charge John Gilbride, the Big Apple is one several cities battling the Twilight drug craze. Heroin bags adorned with images from the smash film series Heroin baggies featuring a cartoon of Pattinson and other Twilight characters have been gaining popularity all over the East Coast in the months leading up to the much-hyped premiere of the vampire franchise’s second installment, New Moon, DEA officials say.
