(Newser) – The inauguration of a new president apparently represents very different opportunities to different people. An upstate New York drug crew has been busted for selling "Obama brand" heroin, reports the New York Daily News. Police seized marijuana and heroin packets, most of them stamped with the name "Obama" in red. "It's an absolute disgrace," said a police official.
