A Bothell, Wash., man smokes marijuana from a glass bong at the opening day of the pro-marijuana rally Hempfest in Seattle last summer. Tens of thousands are expected to attend Hempfest this weekend.
SEATTLE – They’re calling it “Operation Orange Fingers.” Really.
Seattle police will hand out bags of Doritos at Hempfest on Saturday.
Police department spokesman Sgt. Sean Whitcomb confirmed the unusual duty, saying he and other officers will distribute 1-ounce bags of nacho-cheese chips with educational information affixed to them about the state’s new legal pot law.
The bags also will contain a label with a link to the department’s “Marijwhatnow” FAQ, which explains that, yes, adults are now allowed to possess up to an ounce of weed, and that, no, you can’t get back the pot that cops might have seized before voters legalized recreational weed in last November’s election.
