Seattle PD to Hempfesters: Have some Doritos!

Using the theory that the way to pot smoker's brains is through their stomachs, or perhaps that no one will pass up a good munchie, Seattle police have a plan to get the word out about marijuana policy at Hempfest this weekend.

For those unfamiliar, Hempfest is a large gathering of people who support just about all things marijuana in the parks along the Seattle waterfront. Copious amounts of marijuana are smoked or otherwise consumed in public view, but arrests were rare even in the days before the passage of Initiative 502.

This year, Seattle PD has decided to take a more proactive approach, handing out one ounce bags of Doritos Nacho Cheese chips that will have a link to the department's frequently asked questions on legalized marijuana, Mariwhatnow?

The Seattle Times reports this plan is dubbed Operation Orange Fingers. Seriously.

One wonders how the department will up it's game for 2014. Small boxes of Screaming Yellow Zonkers?
