This Police Department is Trying Prevent Drug Use With a Hilarious Tweet

By Melissa Cordell - Jul 16 2017

Gilbert Police Department in Arizona posted a hilarious tweet about drugs that went viral on Twitter. 

"We do our best to make creative content, to hopefully engage with our citizens, but we didn't see this coming," Gilbert Police Department said via Twitter DM's. 

The tweet has more than 76,000 retweets and 135,000 likes. It has engaged both teens and adults on Twitter.

Though this tweet was funny, there was some seriousness to it. "We did it as a joke, but if it gets people talking, even better," the Gilbert Police Department said.
