Seattle Police Give Out Doritos At Pot Festival, Ran Out In Ten Minutes

This weekend was Seattle’s Hempfest, an annual festival celebrating marijuana. I imagine that the pot festival on that grassy knoll over there went down similarly to how it went down in years past — red eyes, bad fashion, and body odor — but this time, there was one major difference. Marijuana is now legal. Formerly busy arresting people during that weekend, Seattle police needed a new way to occupy their time. They did so by handing out bags of Doritos during Hempfest as a part of what they call “Operation Orange Fingers.”

The purpose of their operation was to inform marijuana users of the new laws regarding their newly legalized drug of choice. Each bag of Doritos was adorned with facts about how to safely and legally use cannabis, and directed them to a website to get all of the “marijuwhatnow literature.”

Police joked in anticipation of the event over Twitter.

I’m not a fan of Bugles, either. Doritos are everyone’s go-to munchie, obviously, but Seattle Police didn’t realize quite how true that was, as they came under-prepared, running out of the delicious, fake cheese-dusted snack within the first ten minutes of the festival. I can’t say I’m surprised.
