Pot jokes on social media came from an expected source on 4/20, the day that honors cannabis – cops.
While most police departments used social media to alert drivers that operating a car under influence is illegal, a few had a sense of humor about it. Their content scored huge results.
Following up on a viral tweet last year that racked up hundreds of thousands of likes and retweets, the police of Wyoming, Minnesota are deploying more Tom and Jerry-esque traps for hungry tokers.
But the Wyoming police aren’t alone. Dozens of other police departments also posted content.
Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (Palm Beach County, Florida)
Mineral Wells Police Department (Mineral Wells, Texas)
Bismarck Police Department (Bismarck, North Dakota)
In observance of #420day, we are taking a survey to find the best hiding place for #marijuana. Please comment below with where you hide yours! Also include your address and any vehicle license plates you may have. Thank you for your input!— Bismarck Police (@BismarckPolice) April 20, 2018

This feels like an appropriate time of year to remind our followers (again) that if you sell weed out of your apartment, you're gonna get robbed at gunpoint. When you call 911, just say they stole your weed, don't lie and vacuum the coffee table. It complicates the investigation.— Lawrence Police (@LawrenceKS_PD) April 17, 2018
A litany of brands also fired up for the holidaze.
