A new blotter paper featuring Bernie Sanders’ hairline and glasses has been designed in a manner reminiscent of classic Grateful Dead blotter paper. And it’s making the rounds on the psychedelic fan-circuit.
One Reddit thread titled “25 tabs of Grateful Bernie” features lots of fawning praise of Sanders, the acid, and of course, a few shots at socialist humor.
“Is the acid subsidized, too?” writes “BleachKeef.”
“A great way to connect with millenials :D” writes “fibonacci.”
On a related topic, Redditors have been asking the age-old question, “Is it just me, or is Bernie Sanders good vibes?” Thus is titled yet another Bernie/acid thread that seeks important answers.
“Maybe it’s just all the young people around him constantly, but when I’m tripping I feel NOTHING but hope when this guy talks. True hope. Also for some reason he looks younger/more like an ape or a monkey but that’s okay I love him,” writes u/stopresisting9000.
“I went to one of his rallies very recently on two tabs. Definitely good vibes,” writes TreatyBargain.
Perhaps contrary to the spirit of Sanders’ politics, the blotter is now being sold on eBay (though unless their terms of service change dramatically, you’re going to have to find your own acid).
Adopting one’s drug of choice is becoming an increasingly political decision: Donald Trump-branded heroin hit the streets last month.
