The police department is known for its sense of humor.

It's 4/20 Day and there's a need for weed.

But as pot smokers laud all things marijuana on the annual celebration of weed culture, police lie in wait...

There are cunning predators at Wyoming PD, who for the second year in a row have set traps to lure weed lovers with a case of the munchies.

Last year they set out Cheetos, Doritos and Xbox games while lurking nearby with a man-sized net.


– 24 hours in Chisago County, as tweeted by local cops.

This time round, they've sprinkled a Hansel and Gretel-esque trail of Funyun crumbs to a cage containing more Cheetos and a can of Mountain Dew.

Needless to say the tweet is another hit, getting more than 1,500 shares on the social media site on Friday morning.

Wyoming isn't the only police department getting into the spirit, including Chisago County Sheriff's Office – another Minnesota police department known for its irreverent humor.

It posted the following, donut-themed video, telling local residents: "Why blaze it, when you can glaze it?"

Officers in Crystal have decided on a slightly less tactful approach.

Meanwhile in Congress, Sen. Chuck Schumer has proposed a bill to decriminalize marijuana in honor of 4/20 Day, so maybe there won't be any need for Wyoming PD to lay such traps in the future?

Who are we kidding, there's no way that's going to pass.
