Wyoming Police have a fiendish way to catch anyone illicitly partaking in 4/20
Clue: it involves a whole lot of snacks and video games.
In places where weed is illegal, 4/20 must be a pretty difficult day for the police. However, a force in Wyoming has set up its very own stoner trap to battle this problem.
A picture posted on its Twitter page shows a stoner’s heaven: snacks, soft drinks and video games. Little do they know, a policeman is lurking nearby with a giant net, ready to catch any smoker who just couldn’t resist the lure of Cheetos.
The picture was posted with the caption: “Undercover #420 operations are in place. Discreet traps have been set up throughout the city today. #Happy420.”
You’ve got to respect the ingenuity – these crafty cops knew that all stoners want on 4/20 is to eat cheesy snacks and play Grand Theft Auto.
Police Twitter pages aren’t exactly known for bringing the lols, so this was a welcome stunt from Wyoming PD.
It’s obvious that this is a joke from the police department (judging by the sheer size of their net – we wonder where they got it from), so we love how they are having a bit of a laugh on 4/20.
It’s not all just giggles at Wyoming PD today, as there is a serious message behind the jokey tweet.
The police said: “All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue. We use tongue in cheek humour to bring attention to those issues,” and offered help and support to those who need it.
