Study: 'Donald Trump' Tops List of New Meth Nicknames

By Annamarya Scaccia

When it comes to talking about President Donald Trump, there is no shortage of nicknames to use. If you hear someone mention "Agent Orange," "Cheeto-in-Chief," "Mango Mussolini," or "Putin's Puppet," you know they mean Trump.

But it seems "Trump" has an alternative meaning of its own. Some people also use the name of the 45th president when they want to buy or sell methamphetamine, according to a new study published Tuesday by treatment and recovery site Addictions.com.

The study found that "Trump" and "Donald Trump" topped the list of most common celebrity code names for meth. In other words, people looking to score some crystal offline or over social media may reference the president's full name or surname, rather than use slang terms like ice or chalk, in order to evade police detection, says Logan Freedman, a data scientist at Addictions.com and one of the researchers behind the study.
