High concept: Seattle police fight Hempfest munchies with ‘Operation Orange Fingers’

As promised, the Seattle Police Department came through with its offer of free Doritos for attendees of Seattle’s Hempfest celebration Saturday. “Operation Orange Fingers” (their code name, not ours) was intended to educate the public by including a list of marijuana dos and don’ts on each bag. For example, citizens were urged not to drive while high, but encouraged to enjoy Hempfest and “listen to Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume.”

I-502 brings marijuana under the regulation of the state’s liquor control agency in an attempt to allow police to refocus their efforts on violent and property crimes. More importantly, though — free Doritos.

No cool ranch, sorry.

Police burned through several cases of snacks in no time at all before deciding they were too “spacey” to continue.
