Minnesota Police Setting Traps for Stoners on 4/20

By now, most everyone knows (or understands), what 4/20 means for tokers, potheads and medical marijuana users. And while marijuana has recently undergone something of a renaissance (legally speaking) in several states, the sticky-icky remains illegal on the federal level. 

Fortunately, thanks to a few posts on twitter today, it doesn't look like the Wyoming, Minnesota Police Department is out to harsh anyone's mellow on 4/20.

Located along the south branch of the Sunrise River and home to around 8,000 people, Wyoming, Minnesota is mostly known for being a stopover for people driving on the I-35. But, now, thanks to the hysterical tweets they send out, they'll also be known for their sense of humor. 

Several photos of the 'discrete' traps being set out to catch anyone who might be toking up and blazing out to Pink Floyd records all afternoon were posted this morning and immediately went viral as people appreciated the humor inherent in the posts.

With only ten officers on their payroll, creative measures are often required when tracking down slippery stoners. 

This isn't the first time the Wyoming, MN Police Twitter account has gone viral. Back in February, during Superbowl 51, the police department tweeted out another tongue-in-cheek message that promised if residents drove drunk that night, they would absolutely regret it. 

That one single tweet had 1.1 million views. 

Needless to say, there's at least one social media pro in the Wyoming, MN police department. Perhaps it's the same person manning the Wendy's Twitter account
