    Hempfest in Seattle, Washington is a yearly festival where thousands gather to smoke pot, listen to music, and enjoy the surroundings. In previous years, cops may have arrested people for smoking pot, but this year they'll be handing out the muchies. This Friday, Seattle will kick off their first hempfest since Washington state legalized recreational marijuana.

    Cops will still be on hand during the festival, but instead of arresting anyone, police will be handing out 1,000 bags of Doritos with special labels explaining the “DOs and DON'Ts” of Seattle's new pot laws. Department spokesman, Sgt. Sean Whitcomb said, “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.”

    Sgt. Sean Whitcomb has even gone so far as to announce that police won't be ticketing for public consumption at the festival. The biggest misconception about the new law they want to nip in the bud: marijuana smoking in public isn't legal.

    Come gather ’round people
    Wherever you roam
    And admit that the waters
    Around you have grown
    And accept it that soon
    You’ll be drenched to the bone
    If your time to you is worth savin’
    Then you better start swimmin’ or you’ll sink like a stone
    For the times they are a-changin’

    Seattle police to hand out Doritos to Hempfest attendees
    instead of public consumption tickets

    Seattle Police won't be ticketing people for public consumption at this weekend's Hempfest. Instead, they'll be issuing munchies along with information on the newly-passed marijuana laws in Washington state.

    We already predict that there will be two schools of thought on this from the ganja smoking camp: The first, is that it's a funny, smart and tongue-in-check way of distributing some public information to a target group of people. The second is that it's an insulting way for police to continue stereotype cannabis users as junk-food eating dumbbells. We here at Toke side more with the former than the latter here, though admittedly we have a thing for Doritos to begin with. More >>

    The Marijuana Tipping Point Is Here
    The tide of drug prohibition is turning. With the decision of voters in Colorado and Washington state last year to not just decriminalize but legalize marijuana outright, I believe the nation arrived at a tipping point.

    Polling shows people are increasingly open to the notion that not all drugs should be outlawed. A survey by Pew Research Center back in March found a majority of Americans - 52 percent - now say marijuana should be legal. More strikingly, 72 percent agreed that government efforts to enforce marijuana laws cost more than they are worth, and three in four agreed the drug has "legitimate medical uses."

    dwr: I was impressed with this CNN story: As haze clears, are American opinions on pot reaching tipping point?

    Seriously, I don't do dorito's or pepsico products. I don't eat junk food, unless I'm hungry, and its all that's available. . The gesture is insulting, but in the environment of cannabis ignorance we live, it's probably not as degrading as it should be, and will be when it is forgotten as something special and simply utilized for the gift it is. Its a plant with many virtues and easy to grow. Only those selling synthetic alternatives and Pepsico's¹ Frito Lay's frito banditos are holding on to the prohibition as tightly as most police stations and rehabilitators. Apparently some conservative corporations are willing to over ride their silly idealism's if profit finds a stoner market.

    Frito-Lay's Munchies come in the following varieties: Cheese Fix, Flamin' Hot, Totally Ranch, Ultimate Cheddar, BBQ, Reduced Fat and even a Kid's Mix.

    Munches, man we've got Ganja bars sold in vending machines.
    Thanks but no thanks.

    Just be careful below the Mason Dixie Nixon line, the rednecks in suits still don't seem to "get it". Or they do "get it" and that should provide enough to discredit them for being treasonous slimedawgs. Still clinging to their old oily ways. So deranged in reefer madness they waste tax dollars banning hemp nutritional candy before it becomes a stepping stone to heroin for the little redneck kids. It's clearly mental illness and why they get to legislate anything being so far removed from reality is beyond not only reason. But legalities. We pay these hysterical profiteers to represent we the people. Not their corporate investments and future employment opportunities. Unfortunately the proverbial "deep south" has spread like cancer and racism in all of the states. Still old clingons harming people, including kids with seizures in draconian states. Especially those who's livelihoods have been outsourced. As a cash crop to sell at the local textile mills or as an excellent nutritional supplement. Clothing to lumber without clear cutting forests. This plant is for the people especially during hard times and its well past time to stop making policy on gossip from vested interests. Who seem to have no problem with the kids going to bed hungry. Just as long as they don't scare off the drug worriers hobgoblins with truth.

    Starting in the 1860s, the Ganja Wallah Hasheesh Candy Company made maple sugar hashish candy, which soon became one of the most popular treats in America. For 40 years, it was sold over the counter and advertised in newspapers, as well as being listed in the catalogs of Sears-Roebuck, as a totally harmless, delicious, and fun candy.
