Police made the discovery of what they called the "Drugs of the Year" after stopping a Peugeot 307 on the Autobahn.

Police in the German city of Osnabruck have announced that they seized a cache of over 5,000 orange (naturally) MDMA tablets stamped with the president's scowling visage.

Five thousand pills to be exact.

Two men, a 51 year old and his 17 year old son, were arrested and appeared in court on Sunday. Osnabrück officers pulled over a father-son duo who were packing about 5,000 tablets of the stuff, which could have sold for over $40,000 on the street.

Police said the pair had been driving from Amsterdam, where the drugs are believed to have been produced, to Hanover. Also in the auto was a "larger amount of cash", according to police.

Authorities suspect the pills, which were found in the back of the van during a road check Saturday night, originated in the Netherlands.

But now they are in prison, after a judge issued an arrest warrant.

Perhaps the most ironic element of this trend is that the President's pompadour should be the chosen shape for a drug known for producing warm and fuzzy feelings and an abundance of empathy, two things notably lacking in the US after a divisive election and wave after wave of controversy.

While ecstasy is a popular choice for partygoers of the younger generations, they are illegal and classified by the U.N.as a highly addictive substance.

The pills are reportedly being marketed on the darknet with the tagline "Trump makes partying great again", a play on the USA president's election campaign slogan "Let's make America great again", DW reported.
