Police department's 4/20 operations tweet goes viral

A photo of a Minnesota police department's "undercover 4/20 operations" went viral after being shared on social media Thursday.

The Wyoming Police Department's 4/20 tweet from past year featuring a cardboard box "trap" with Cheetos and Doritos also went viral. Small and quirky as it may be, the police department's Twitter presence is a force to be reckoned with. In just a few hours, the quick-witted officers received thousands of retweets and "likes" on their Twitter message on marijuana's high holiday, 4/20.

An attached photo showed an officer standing with a large net behind various "munchies", Mountain Dew and video games.

Around 9 a.m. the account did take a serious tone saying, "All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue. We use tongue in cheek humor to bring attention to those issues". They also offered to help find resources to those with substance abuse issues without issuing jail time.
