A police department in Minnesota has set up traps throughout the city today

I don't even smoke weed and I'd fall for that trap

That's entrapment nigga

I think this cop just wants friends to hang out and play video games with.

Thanks for the tip, OP.

I actually got caught at a park by one of these traps, but I just told the officer I was there to watch the kids on the playground and he let me go with an apology.

To catch a redditor

Nigga that's 5 to 10! Don't do that!

It's so funny Hardline is there. I actually know a few cops that love that game.

I was at a playground with my daughter. Apparently I wasn't helicoptering closely enough. After being there about a half an hour a police officer approached me and said hi. I greeted him back and he asked if I had a kid there. I stated I did and he said ok, and that he had a report I did not. So not only will people call the police on a man alone in a park, but moreover the police will respond to such a call. At least in this particular city.

Funny, but also kinda sad. It's 2017 and people still get imprisoned for years for owning a handful of the wrong kind of plant, which is fucked up. And I don't even smoke weed.

you'll need more Bernie Sanders and Rick and Marty to set that trap

sober people

We know the laws AND the penalties!

*Edited for accuracy.

Cops publicly sharing jokes about a substance? It's probably time to decriminalize that substance.

I know a lot of cops that still are.

Rural US is a weird place...

You'd have to be stoned to play hardline.

I know a lot of cops that used to be stoners!

Missing sour patch kids..

Why cant men watch kids play?

Yes

Weed is decriminalized in MN under an ounce, so no jail time here.

For some reason middle aged housewives have a fantasy regarding men having anal sex with kids whenever they see men at a playground. I'd venture to say that this is the result of said housewives being brought up incorrectly by their own shitty parents.

How high are you right now?

Is he trying to catch the guy that fucked his mom?

"WELL, NOW YOU KNOW! GET OUTTA HERE!"

BF Hardline.... Come on...

My fat ass would get caught in that trap so hard.

Marty

Seriously. Who doesn't like White Castle and video games?

Something something Szechwan sauce upvote me.

Cheetohs, Doritos, and Mtn Dew? I need a lawyer.

Male preschool teacher here. I have to work wearing a blindfold most of the day. It was pretty difficult at first, but you'd be surprised how easy it was to adapt.

Where do you live? I live in the South and I never even considered this phenomenon before I heard about it on Reddit. I want to be a father more than anything in the world when I grow up and I hope people don't judge me for playing with my kids.

I like hardline :(

Get out

I do this but I don't have any kids and I just yell random kids names.

That way we all have a good time.

When I take my nephews to the park, I just yell at them every now and then so people know I'm looking after them.

I'll just look up and say "James stop hitting your brother!" and go back to my phone.

Seems to make the moms relax a little.

Jesus christ reddit.

And at least partially on the 24 hour news cycle that spreads info and fear like crazy.

It's obviously there because it's a game about killing cops and so is GTA. It's a joke but apparently people's hatred for Hardline runs deep.

Haha, you guys better get some new glasses and shave that pedo mustache

Also, quit going up to the children and whispering "you're in my swamp now"

Hell yea. My neighbor was like this. Cool af dude.

Then on the other hand on the Indian reservation they just busted a dude who was getting bribes from the Mexicans bring up the meth and sell on the rez. This guy has been doing this for decades and it is sweet because maybe they can curb the meth problem slightly. I have no hope it will be cured but seems like a big problem just got fixed.

Notice there's no Cheech and Chong of meth.

I saw it once before. He snuck into the house and put pictures of his family everywhere. Just sprinkle some Crack on him.

This is awesome. Love to see police with a sense of humor.

NO TOUCHING!

And combos.

Do you just navigate by feel and touch?

Still trouble

I am not who you replied to but I live in the suburbs of Chicago and have had similar occurrences.

Is XBox the stereotypical stoner platform?

And Funyuns. Funyuns are awesome.

I've been pulled over by the Wyoming, MN police a couple times. Nice guys actually.

Best encounter: Driving through town after work about 10:30pm. Pulled over for a broken headlight. It was winter so I had two large stumps in the back of my truck bed with 2x4 studs framed up nicely to keep the stumps in place. A rather portly officer approached with his flashlight out. As he shines the light in my truck bed all I hear is "Huh, nice wood!" Had to stifle my laughter.

Bargain bin

That's the place I would imagine it happening the most, honestly.

Wrongful conviction!

Dave, I'm gonna race him.

I laugh so hard every time Chappelle does his white guy voice.

United States v. Approximately 64,695 Pounds of Shark Fins

Seems legit!

I live in the same county. From a local perspective, this photo ticks me off. This police dept has been focusing way too much on weed - a harmless substance - and not things that actually matter. I would be happy if they started putting more pressure on things that risks everyone's lives such as distracted drivers.

Doc and Mharti

It's not a claim.

I've only heard about this phenomenon recently and my eldest daughter is ten, so I've spent a lot of time at playgrounds. Where I live there's typically as many men supervising as women. Admittedly I'm in the UK and our culture is pretty different to the US South (I don't even want to think about what you do to tea over there).

If people judge you for playing with your kids then fuck 'em. Your kids will love you for it and that makes any stranger's opinion utterly insignificant.

It used to be seen as the bro/CoDKid console. Not sure now.

Ah, maybe that's what I'm doing wrong. I just wear a hoodie with the hood up, dark sun glasses, and read a book called "Abduction 101: How to get away with it!".

They know that we know the law...

Exactly--Jail time is often the least of people's concerns. Even if you are arrested with under 1.5 ounces, it is still a petty misdemeanor misdemeanor in Minnesota. The financial and social costs of being charged with a petty misdemeanor misdemeanor can range from thousands of dollars in legal fees and fines (although the actual fine is usually only a couple hundred bucks), to years of court and expungement proceedings, to jeopardizing future employment and educational opportunities.

Edit: It is, in fact, a petty misdemeanor. See Minn. Stat. 152.027, subd. 4(a). Those stoners over at NORML.org need to update their website. Anyways, I would argue the point still stands. If you are arrested and charged with a petty misdemeanor, there can still be significant financial and social consequences that are not ameliorated simply because there are lesser fines and no jail time. There is also still a risk for employers to find out you were arrested with something that might factor into employment opportunities, especially in smaller communities and because arrest information can be spread or obtained online.

Edit 2: Here's more information on criminal expungements in the State of Minnesota--which can cost money, may require a court appearance, and involve waiting periods.

Edit 3: Here's a page from the ACLU related to collateral consequences of drug convictions, and some further resources here.

Thank you old black man

meanwhile in seattle cops give out doritos with do's and don'ts of pot including:


Don't drive while high. Don't give, sell, or shotgun weed to people under 21. don't use pot in public. you could be cited but we'd rather give you a warning.
Do listen to Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume.

Justified outrage is the American national past time. These people spend so much time and energy worrying about strangers buttfucking their children, it's like shooting heroin when they get an actual chance to confront a perceived threat.

MN police are extremely anti-marijuana - even for medical use.

The coalition, which includes Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association, Minnesota Chiefs of Police Association, Minnesota Sheriffs Association, Minnesota County Attorneys Association, and Minnesota State Association of Narcotics Investigators, have been as unhelpful as possible with efforts to legalize medical marijuana.

http://www.startribune.com/law-enforcement-flexes-muscle-at-minnesota-capitol/380052581/

Law enforcement groups have advocated on a variety of measures at the Capitol in recent years, ranging from allowing cops to retain license plate reader scans to blocking an expansion of fireworks sales. They also helped shape one of the most restrictive medical marijuana laws in the country.

I've never had white castle sober, and don't plan to. I think it would ruin it not being drunk as fuck.

Shit nigga sometimes you gotta race

All except one cop I have met in Minnesota has been in favor of legalization. Source: totally personal experiences of myself and friends in wright county.

Honestly they really want to find meth and heroin since the past 10 years have been very bad in that area.

Kind of fascinating how the opinion seems to be different when they are dealing with their own

You know that Care Bear who shoots clovers out of his tummy? That high.

Actually of all parts of the US, the only one with tea game on point is the south

I'd argue that it hardly spreads info. It spreads spin. Getting a neutral, just the facts take on anything is damn near impossible, news always seems to have a stance or opinion.

....then Newseek printed it and you knew it was true...

"Oh my god! Honey, did you see this? Apparently police have been beating up negroes like hotcakes!"

Just sprinkle some crack on him and let's get out of here.

They are all legit.

The last one is from 2013.

United States v. Ninety-Five Barrels Alleged Apple Cider Vinegar is a 1924 case concerning the Pure Food Act.

United States v. 11 1/4 Dozen Packages of Articles Labeled in Part Mrs. Moffat's Shoo-Fly Powders... is a 1941 case that affirmed the FDA's ability to regulate things that were sold a drugs but weren't sold at pharmacies.

United States v. One Book Called Ulysses was a 1933 case because people were trying to get James Joyce's classic novel classified as "obscene".

Quantity of Books v. Kansas was a 1964 case that held the seizure of obscene books to be Unconstitutional.

One 1958 Plymouth Sedan v. Pennsylvania was a 1965 case that held that Civil Forfeiture didn't work when the evidence use to prove the crime was ruled inadmissible in the other case.

United States v. Article Consisting of 50,000 Cardboard Boxes More or Less, Each Containing One Pair of Clacker Balls was the seizure of unsafe toys under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act.

United States v. One Tyrannosaurus Bataar Skeleton was a 2013 case about some folks who stole a T-Rex and smuggled it into the US.

It's all ogre after that comment.

sigh I guess I have to now because you said Szechuan sauce and that's the rules.

How about Heisenberg and Jesse Pinkman?

Decriminalization: we realize that what you're doing isn't wrong, but we have this sweet regulatory fee reclamation thing going on that we'd like to keep going a bit longer

Really? I thought Boston was renowned for its epic tea parties.

When i see helicoptering I think waving your dick around and the police report makes a lot of sense.
