Those who get arrested in Southern Pines, North Carolina, for celebrating "Weed Day" on Friday are in for a treat when they arrive at the police station.

The Southern Pines Police Department is taking a light-hearted approach to April 20, informally known as "Weed Day."

“To ensure the Southern Pines Police Department is prepared for additional guests visiting our detention facility on the 4/20 holiday, advanced preparation has taken place to accommodate the needs of these prisoners,” the police department posted on its Facebook page on Thursday.

Photos of a holding cell stocked with Oreos, Coca-Cola and Cha-Ching wavy potato chips in a bowl accompanied the post. A pair of handcuffs was casually placed next to the Oreos, the News & Observer reports.
