Minnesota Police Department is having some fun at the expense of drug users.
Their innocent posts on Twitter quickly blew up and became a national sensation.
With yesterday being 4/20, a stoner holiday, the department posted photos of their “undercover operations.”
There is a photo of an officer with a net waiting behind ‘pot head bait,’ which is Doritos, Cheetos, Mountain Dew, Video Games and, of course, White Castle. There is also another picture of a home-made trap with other ‘pot head’ goodies used as ‘bait.’
This is their attempt to bring humor to the serious issue of substance abuse.
They used this opportunity to remind those who suffer from addiction to not be afraid to see help, as being addicted does NOT mean time will be spent in prison.
WYOMING, Minn. (KMSP) – After winning 4/20 with a viral post last year, the Wyoming, Minnesota Police Department is back at it this year on the stoner holiday. Wyoming PD posted a photo of its “undercover 4/20 operations” which include an officer with a net, waiting behind the pothead bait of Doritos, Cheetos, Mountain Dew, White Castle and a few video games.
“Undercover #420 operations are in place. Discreet traps have been set up throughout the city today. #Happy420,” Wyoming PD warned. “All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue. We use tongue in cheek humor to bring attention to those issues. With that being said, if you need help with substance abuse issues please contact us and we’ll find resources. That does NOT mean jail time.”
Last year, the Wyoming Police Department posted a photo to Facebook and Twitter of its undercover 4/20 “stings” which involved Cheetos, Doritos and a cardboard box trap.
