With the Olympic Games set to get underway in another month, it seems that drug dealers in Rio de Janerio are working to capitalize on the “Faster – Higher – Stronger” motto by branding packages of marijuana with the logo specially designed for the Rio 2016 event.
According to a report published earlier this week by the AFP, police recently discovered that marijuana is being distributed in some of the most downtrodden areas of the Brazilian state, labeled with the swirling rendition of the Olympics logo that was designed by the game’s organizing committee.
Law enforcement officers are said to have found a number of packages of the cleverly marketed pot product some time last week in the Nova Holanda district. The force’s leading narcotics agent Felipe Curi told reporters that the herb “had the Olympic Games logo stuck to the packets,” which are believed to be connected to the cartel activity that has ramped up ahead of the games scheduled to begin the first week of August.
