Spanish police confiscate drugs disguised as Barcelona candy

Dirty Tackle

Barcelona fans looking to escape the harsh reality of not winning anything this season via hallucinogenic drugs face disappointment today, as a large batch of Blaugrana-themed drug-laced candy has been taken out of circulation.

According to Sport, Spanish police have busted a drug trafficking ring involving nine people in Valencia and Alicante. One of those arrested was a master 'Turrónero' — a person who makes Turrón nougat for confectionery stores — who had been using his skills to make marijuana-laced chocolates and nougat containing hallucinogenic mushrooms.

In order to appeal to those who love beautiful passing football as well as candy and recreational drugs, they were molded into the shape of the Barca crest.

A total of 300 grams (10.6 oz) of drugged delicacies were seized, along with large quantities of cocaine and speed, and nearly $30,000 in cash.
