Police have warned of Donald Trump-shaped ecstasy pills, which are high-strength and dangerous.
A 30-year-old man from Luton has been arrested on suspicion of delivering the orange tablets that are said to look like the head of the US president, Bedfordshire police said.
Detective Sergeant Ryan Barnes said, “Criminals are constantly looking for new ways to sell their drugs and make them more attractive.

& # 39; We have seen MDMA tablets look like a number of culturally popular products and a recent example of this is the & # 39; Donald Trumps & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The & # 39; Donald Trumps & # 39; are dangerous tablets that are extremely high in MDMA and can cause serious harm to anyone who takes them.
"If you come across this or any other type of medication, please do not take it for your own safety as you can never be sure what these pills contain."
In 2018, according to Statistica, 92 people in England and Wales died as a result of ecstasy.
This was the highest number of ecstasy / MDMA deaths in 25 years, and the number has remained high.
MDMA is classified as a Class A drug in the UK, which means possession or supply of drugs carries the most severe penalties.
Most ecstasy-related deaths are caused by hyperthermia or overheating, especially because the drug is often taken in raves or nightclubs where it is crowded and can be easily dehydrated.
Ecstasy pills are rarely pure MDMA and are often cut with other things like cocaine, heroin, or even rat poison.
Long-term abuse of ecstasy can lead to psychosis, nerve degeneration, depression, anxiety, memory loss, kidney failure, and much more.
The NHS has guides on how to get help with drug addiction, where they recommend starting with a family doctor, finding local drug services, and reaching out to charities.
