Police Hand Out Bags of Doritos at Seattle HempFest

Police officers descended on this past weekend’s 3-day marijuana festival, Seattle HempFest, not with handcuffs or citations, but one thousand bags of Doritos. A sticker with a brief guide to Washington’s new marijuana law was affixed to each bag, as well as a link to Marijwhatnow, the department’s guide to legal marijuana use in Seattle. Shockingly, “Operation Orange Fingers” was over in ten minutes, as festival-goers tore through the police’s entire supply of chips.
