Planning on lighting up to celebrate 420?
Be warned: One Illinois police department is on the lookout for anyone intent on toking.
The police department in Washington, Illinois, which is near Peoria, warned of a cannabis crackdown with a tongue-in-cheek post on Facebook.
“4/20 is upon us and WPD offers fair warning to anyone partaking in celebration that we will be baiting the traffic trap with junk food. Next aisle: Twinkies,” the department wrote in the post. “Stay safe Thursday and every day: don’t smoke (or chew, or vape, or dab or anything else) and drive! Thanks.”
Never miss a local story.
The post includes a photo of an officer in a grocery store, pushing a cart loaded with potato chips and a giant mouse trap.
The 420 term is a reference to smoking marijuana at 4:20 a.m. or p.m. on April 20 (4/20).
