A tiny pot bust to remember…and rebuke
The New York Police Department proudly tweeted two of its finest posing with itty-bitty bags of pot. What was the NYPD thinking? Of course the Twitterverse was not impressed.
And hordes of Twitter users said so.
The weed is the only thing in this picture that won't kill you. https://t.co/yrSo8S7G0I

@NYPD106Pct Why they posing like they got El Chapo. They probably busted a 17 year old. That is not a lot of weed

The thing about marijuana is that it's almost ubiquitous in the U.S., with nearly 61 percent of the population supporting its legalization, mic.com reports. And that means posting postage stamp-sized pot bust looks, well, rather silly.
The dealer these two took down was also packing machetes and apparently a can of Monster energy drink. Well, the machetes could have been trouble, but the weed certainly wasn't.
And apparently the NYPD in Ozone Park, Queens, was unhappy because the photo they tweeted wasn't getting much attention. So they tweeted it again, and that resulted in these tweets like this:

@NYPD106Pct The can of monster is a whole lot deadlier than the lettuce homie.

@NYPD106Pct "marijuana dealer" holds about the same weight as "cotton candy distributor" in this tweet for some reason

And in the "I couldn't have said it better myself category," there's this:
@NYPD106Pct They really fucked up tweeting this

Dear police people: If you want to promote a better image on the social media, don't show everyone how you picked on the little guy or shot some random, innocent African-Americans as you so often do. You see, to the rest of us, who are just everyday people, it makes you look bad.
Now, going after serial rapists, child molesters and murderers — that makes you look good.
