Michigan police department uses marijuana puns to practice social distancing


BATH TOWNSHIP – A Michigan police department is reminding everyone to “doobie cautious” and practice social distancing on a day that has become a national holiday where people gather to celebrate all things marijuana-related.

Through humorous marijuana puns Bath Township Police Department sent out a reminder, via Facebook, to continue practice social distancing Monday – 4/20, a national day to smoke, consume and celebrate marijuana.

The department posted the following message:

“Weed not be doing our jobs if we didn’t remind you all that social distancing is still important. It’s a joint effort between all of us, from Herb to Mary Jane. Doobie cautious and avoid social gatherings such as pot lucks. If you’re out blazing some fall leaves or chatting with neighbors make sure to stay on your side of the grass. Hash out issues with your family peacefully even if they’re acting like a little roach. Today is 4/20 which means we’re closer to being able to hang out with our buds again which will be pretty dope. So reefer to the guidelines until then and stay safe.”

To end the post, the department shared its condolences who couldn’t celebrate today.

“And we’re aware of the difficulties faced by everyone as they cannot get together today to celebrate Carmen Electra’s birthday.”

Facebook users shared their thoughts, which were mainly positive and in support. Scroll through the gallery above to see what some had to say.
