The Drug War isn't exactly what it used to be, but that doesn't mean both sides aren't constantly introducing innovative new tactics to get an edge. Cops have already embraced social media as a way to mock and demoralize criminals, but now it seems they've discovered a new use for it: contrived Looney Tunes-esque entrapment plots like this fake flyer.

This image was posted by Pat Melton, the sheriff of Franklin Country, Kentucky. He got the idea from a similar post by The McIntosh County Sheriff's Office in Georgia. He thought it was so funny, he posted it on his own office's Facebook page, where it quickly went viral. It currently has more than 2,000 shares, although there's no way to count how many of those are from drug dealers.
