Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera Used as Code Names for Cocaine

(Radio.com) Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera - '90s and '00s music stars, pop icons andů code words for cocaine and other drugs? That's what New York drug dealers were doing with their craft, it was revealed Tuesday (June 10) by the Times Union, which covers Albany and its surrounding area.

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.
