Minnesota police department has fun with stoners on 4/20

The police department in Wyoming, Minn., got a viral reaction to a amusing tweet it posted for 4/20, a day marijuana users consider a holiday.

Police Department sent out a tweet that its "undercover" 4/20 operations are in place and that discreet traps have been set up throughout the city. "#Happy420", the department tweeted. The department posted a similar message a year ago. Also pictured were a police vehicle and officer standing by with a net.

The message quickly lit up Twitter, where it was retweeted more than 29,000 times as of early Thursday afternoon. "Discreet traps have been set up throughout the city today" and is trending on Twitter.

A later tweet reads, "All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue". Last year, the department tried to "catch" smokers by placing Doritos and Cheetos under a classic box-and-stick trap. "We use tongue in cheek humor to bring attention to those issues". It said: "If you drive drunk tonight we're going to subject you to that Justin Bieber T-Mobile Super Bowl Commercial the entire way to jail".
