The police in Assam seized a huge consignment of marijuana, and had a tongue-in-cheek way to let everyone know about it.
Assam Police tweeted asking if anyone lost their weed supply. “Anyone lost a huge (590 kgs) amount of Cannabis/Ganja and a truck in and around Chagolia Checkpoint last night?” the police force’s official handle tweeted.
Asking the people who lost it to not “panic”, the force tweeted that the owner of the consignment could contact the Dhubri district police for further assistance. “Don’t panic, we found it. Please get in touch with @Dhubri_Police. They will help you out, for sure ;)” they tweeted.

The tweet got a lot of attention online, leaving many in splits. While some said it was “epic trolling”, others called for more retweets so that the actual owners could get the message.
