Seattle Hempfest

While I've never used marijuana myself, I have a very liberal attitude toward it. I was rather happy that Washington recently legalized it.

This weekend was Seattle Hempfest (second year that it's been technically legal but 22nd year it's been held). And I really like the attitude of my adopted home town... Not just because they have a festival but because the police are there handing out Doritos. Yep!

Each bag has a list of DOs and DONTs, such as "Don't drive while high" and "Do listen to Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume."

Given that the Seattle Police don't always have a great reputation, it's nice to see them do something like this that shows humor and is effective at reaching out to folks. Kudos to them for #OperationOrangeFingers.
