Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department’s Facebook page is viral due to repeated images of “drug busts” in the county
Most of the images show very small amounts of cannabis and are receiving ridicule
On Tuesday the page went viral after making a post showing a small bag of cannabis a pipe and a grinder
Law enforcement agencies have been seeing a growing amount of ridicule on social media for cannabis busts
Around the country the majority of the people are embracing a future with legal cannabis. As this legal battle continues, we are are seeing substantial scrutiny towards law enforcement agencies that focus on cannabis arrests.
Despite the growing scrutiny, some agencies continue to make the mistake of posting small cannabis busts to their social media page, only for the post to go viral and the agency to be ridiculed by the people of the Internet. The Halifax County Sheriff’s Office learned this lesson the hard way when they decided to brag about a “bust” involving one “Fruity Pebbles Marijuana Bar.”
The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Department has decided to double down on bragging about their cannabis busts on social media. The VBCSD uses their Facebook page to post images of notably small cannabis arrests religiously.
With such ridiculous posts, it was only a matter of time before the page went viral. On Tuesday, the page shared an image showing a small amount of cannabis, a pipe and a grinder with the caption, “Marijuana and Paraphernalia off the streets.” In under 13 hours, the post was shared over 800 times and had received over 2.7 thousand comments, the vast majority of which were quite negative.
As it turns out, this is something the VBCSD has been doing for a while. After digging through the VBSCD Facebook page, here are some of their most comical “drug busts” of 2018.
THAT IS LIKE $1,200 BUCKS!!!
