This might be the perfect gag gift for the political pothead in your life!

Chris Goodwin of Vapor Central, a Toronto-based lounge for cannabis connoisseurs, designed parody Zig Zag rolling papers inspired by Liberal leader Justin Trudeau, a self-confessed (social) pot smoker and legalization advocate.

After Goodwin brought the gimmicky idea to life, what began as a Conservative plot to spoof the pro-pot politician quickly sparked into a profitable piece of marijuana memorabilia. He told Yahoo! Canada News that his Trudeau rollies took in $500 of revenue in the first day of sales. What’s more, the packs were a huge hit at the Liberal biennial convention last week in Montreal.

If you’ve got some extra green to burn, you too can buy 100 cigarette papers (unofficially) endorsed by a famous Canadian—for just $3.95! Boxes of 25 packs and novelty T-shirts are also on sale online and at retail outlets in Southern Ontario. Stats for Politician-Inspired Smoking Papers Trending: Older & Average
