Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera Used as Code Names for Cocaine
A narcotics ring of more than two dozen members was cracked by police and was indicted today for selling a plethora of drugs - among them heroin, cocaine, ecstasy and more - throughout the area.
A drug bust isn't particularly unusual anywhere, though; it's the code words that the dealers were using as they sold. In attempts to keep the drug deals under wraps, the ring called its wares Britney or Christina Aguilera, after the pop stars (no word on why Aguilera's last name was used but Spears' was not).
Britney was the code name for crack, while Aguilera constituted cocaine. More details here.
