Seattle Police Hand Out Doritos At Pot Party

Over the weekend at this years “Hempfest,”  local police decided to give back and raise awareness in a not so traditional way.

The annual festival, known as the world’s largest pot rally, is always celebrated in the heart of Seattle.  As you may know,  2013 is the first year the state of Washington has legalized recreational marijuana for adults over the age of 21.

So this year instead of issuing citations, Seattle Police Launched  “Operation Orange Fingers.”  Officers distributed 1,000 bags of Doritos tortilla chips at the three-day bash with labels directing people to the department’s online pot primer, “Marijwhatnow?”

The guide explains few of the rules of the new bill. However while recreational pot use is legal under Washington state’s new law, it remains illegal to possess more than an ounce of the drug, smoke it in public, drive under its influence, or to sell it without a license

When asked why Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said,  “We thought, what’s more ironic than police handing out delicious snacks at a festival that celebrates pot?  It’s a conversation starter.”

Maybe next year Whitcomb and his team may want to bring more than 1,000 bags of the beloved Doritos, all were gone in under 10 minutes.
