Olympic branding is everywhere - Ecstasy bust in Vancouver
Olympic rings ecstasy bust in Vancouver

Police answering a 911 call about a home invasion in East Vancouver Wednesday found no break-in suspects when they arrived but did discover 107,000 ecstasy tablets, some imprinted with the Olympic rings symbol.

Vancouver's Olympic organizing committee has vigorously pursued unlicensed use of the Olympic rings symbol in the past and a spokesman said it was aware of the Vancouver police seizure.

"This illustrates that there are and will be unscrupulous uses of the Olympic marks," said Bill Cooper, VANOC's director of commercial rights management. "Like the Vancouver police, we will continue to be diligent in our surveillance and rigorous followup."

This story is just weird. What exactly are our priorities again?

1. I'd say regulate and sell MDMA...
Keep that ecstacy shit banned though.

2. How do you feel about Olympic branding?
The article gives equal weight to the illegal drugs and the illegal use of the logo. Which is the worse crime?

3. Couldn't care less...
They want to keep stuff like MDMA and weed underground, then they're going to have to live with that.
