A marijuana-centric festival in Washington state this weekend will have a heavy police presence, but the cops will be a little friendlier than one might expect.
Instead of handing out summonses at Hempfest 2013, Seattle police have announced plans to hand out bags of snacks— with a message.
Seattle Police Department spokesman, Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said the department intends to use the opportunity to get the word out about their guide to Washington's new marijuana law by attaching a summarized version attached to bags of Doritos.
The guide — called “Marijwhatnow?" — was written by a former journalist, who is now on staff with the police department, a week after Washington voters passed state law I-502, which legalized the possession of up to an ounce of recreational marijuana.
