To serve and protect, and serve? That’s what Seattle cops will be doing at the Seattle Hempfest, which will be a sort of victory celebration for marijuana smokers in the Pacific northwest this year after Washington made it legal for humans over the age of twenty one years to smoke, ingest, etc.
Cops will be handing out roughly 1,000 bags of Doritos to what will likely be hundreds of thousands of people that show up to this huge weed festival, but there’s a reason behind it, this is not just some random act of kindness to some dudes with gauge earrings who have eyes as red as the MiddleEasy Monster, no. The Dorito bags will have labels attached to the bags that will urge the Seattle tokers to educate them about heavy marijuana usage and… Wait, what was I talking about?
I don’t even know, bro. This sativa has me spacey. Here’s Sgt. Sean “Diddy” Whitcomb of the Seattle PD talking about the Dorito stuff. I’m going to go watch the GTA V multiplayer trailer again.
“I think it’s going to be a lot of fun, it’s meant to be ironic. The idea of police passing out Doritos at a festival that celebrates pot, we’re sure, is going to generate some buzz.” “It explains some of the nuances of Washington’s law: that adults can possess up to an ounce but can’t sell it or give it away, that driving under the influence of pot is illegal, and that — festivals aside — public use is illegal.”
Hempfest Executive Director Vivian McPeak (they call her McPeak because she gets SO high) chimes in:
“It’s going to be the most interesting Hempfest we’ve ever had because it’s going to be part victory celebration, that said, we feel it’s very important to remind everyone that as long as it’s still a Schedule 1 drug under the Controlled Substances Act, it’s not legal anywhere. The job’s not done yet.” “We hope people will take it more seriously coming from us than from a traditional messenger,” McPeak said.
