The Mandalorian's Grogu aka Baby Yoda has undoubtedly become the poster "child" (get it?) of the entire Star Wars franchise but despite his lovable nature, there are apparently some people who are tarnishing Grogu's image by using the character in their shady dealings and other illegal activities.
This one may shock you and I'm already telling you, it certainly is not the way. A suspected drug trafficker from Michigan reportedly tried to smuggle 176 pills of illegal Fentanyl which was stuffed inside a Baby Yoda toy. According to a police report (via ComicBook), a man named Zave Garry, a Detroit native intended to sell the drugs at Rutherford County and was caught red-handed.
The said pills were purposely pressed and stamped to resemble 30mg tablets of Roxicodone, a brand name of the opioid pain medication oxycodone. The Rutherford County Sheriff's Office notes that Garry was "charged with felony possession of Schedule II and Schedule VI drugs and misdemeanor unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia." The suspect was also held on a $150,000 bond due to having been out on bond for a similar crime he committed in Coffee County at the time of his arrest. A hearing for the charges was scheduled for September 7th. Check out the post here:

If Baby Yoda was a real thing, he would've probably Force choked the suspect for even attempting to use The Child as a vessel for his drug dealings. Kidding aside though, taking prescription medicine illegally isn't something anyone should be doing.
Meanwhile, it looks like Grogu won't serve as one of the main fixtures in Season 3 of The Mandalorian given the fact that the plot will most likely revolve around the Throne of Mandalore and Din Djarin and Bo-Katan Kryze's epic showdown. It's possible that we'll see more of Grogu in a show like Ahsoka or maybe the rumored Luke Skywalker spinoff show which obviously makes a ton of sense.
The Mandalorian Season 3 is expected to drop in early 2022.
