'Twilight' Connection in Big Heroin Bust

11/23/2009 3:35 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's the kind of "Twilight" merchandise you really don't want your kids getting their hands on -- baggies of heroin with a cartoon of Rob Pattinson's face printed on them.

'Twilight' Connection in Big Heroin Bust

DEA Special Agent Erin McKenzie-Mulvey tells us the heroin baggies with "Twilight" characters were seized recently in West Hempstead, Long Island. The "Twilight"-themed baggies have been gaining popularity over the last couple of months.

New York Special Agent in Charge John Gilbride tells TMZ a dime bag of heroin in New York is cheaper than a six pack of beer.

Where is John Gilbride buying his beer? A "Dime Bag" costs $10; that's why its called a "Dime Bag."

So illegal drugs are cheaper than beer. That is ridiculous! What has been the point of all the billions spent on the War on Drugs if I can get heroin for less than $10?? I don't care about the "Twlight" connection. That is just good marketing by the drug dealers. I just hate to think about all the tax dollars apparently wasted. While I didn't, and don't, expect illegal drugs to just disappear, I would have expected more from our government's efforts than heroin for less than $10 a pop.

@todd da man
I hate to tell you this, but everyone's tax dollars are going to waste in the war on drugs. Sadly, cheap, potent, widespread drug distribution is a direct product of prohibition. The more you know about the WOD the harder it becomes to defend until it gets to a point where i became appalled that this has been going on so long in the land of the free.
