"#Happy420."   (Wyoming Police Department)

(Newser) – If Minnesota's Wyoming Police Department had been serious, it might've actually nabbed some pot smokers with its "discreet" trap on 4/20. As it is, the department instead got plenty of laughs—and even praise—for a tweeted photo showing an officer holding a net near a stash of video games, Cheetos, and a bag from White Castle, per ABC 7. "Undercover #420 operations are in place," read the Thursday tweet, liked or retweeted more than 500,000 times. In a later tweet, the department added, "All jokes aside, substance abuse is a real issue. We use tongue in cheek humor to bring attention to those issues."
