Well played, Wyoming, Minnesota. Well played, indeed.

Yesterday, April 20, was 420 day, a day when people around the world (particularly the United States) celebrate the act of smoking marijuana for reasons discussed in more detail here.

The Wyoming Police Department also did the same thing on the same day last year (they put a bit more effort in this time around) and just in case anyone saw fit to accuse them of treating the matter too lightly, they did follow it up with some serious posts about substance abuse.

Looking forward to next year's effort already, Wyoming.

We're not done yet... check this out!
