Police in Minnesota are proving to have a real sense of humor about 420 Day, which represents April 20, the annual holiday weed aficionados have set aside to celebrate getting stoned.
In a tweet that plays on the inevitable outcome of smoking marijuana, playing video games while getting the munchies, the Wyoming Police Department set a hilarious mock trap to snare offenders partaking in the days’ festivities.

And while it’s good law enforcement can make light of the sad holiday, it’s also encouraging to see some municipalities in America STILL consider the drug to be illegal.
At the same time, some weed heads took offense to the post… to the stereotyping AND the outdated video games!
All in all, the WPD Twitter feed was just as hilarious as the original post… here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:
@wyomingpd Can’t stop giggling about this. Y’all continue to crack me up!

@wyomingpd Can we also have the badge number of the officer in the picture, the one taking the picture, as well as the captain who authorized this?

@wyomingpd That will catch metal head teens, but hippies won’t touch those GMO snacks. You need Kind bars, Neuro drinks, and Coco Libre water.

@wyomingpd Not sure what this is all about? As far we knew, 4/20 has and always will be National Lima Bean Respect Day. Look it up.
