A police department in a small Minnesota town is using its Twitter account to have a little fun on 4/20, the date many marijuana users around the world have adopted as their unofficial holiday. A picture sent over Twitter shows a Wyoming, Minnesota Police Department squad vehicle and police officer standing nearby with a net, ready to pounce.
The department received similar attention previous year when its Twitter post was of "munchies" being used as a trap under a cardboard box propped up with a stick.
"Discreet traps have been set up throughout the city today", police said.
As of 10 a.m. Thursday the post had been retweeted more than 22,000 times and gathered more than 30,000 likes.
Police Department is at it again with its comical tweets.
The "traps" include the supposedly favorite items of people under the influence of marijuana: Doritos, Cheetos, Mountain Dew, White Castle and video games like "Grand Theft Auto". "We use tongue in cheek humor to bring attention to those issues".
Last year's tweet had a similar message, yet slightly different approach. "That does NOT mean jail time".
