While you may have heard some buzz about the Seattle Hempfest festival you will want to read some of the facts that make it one of the most loved events in the greatest city in the nation!

Seattle Police Department officers at Seattle’s annual Hempfest this weekend at the Downtown Sculpture Park will be handing out baggies of Doritos with stickers providing links to the rules and regulations of Initiative 502, the law legalizing the recreational use of marijuana in Washington.

Cops will be handing out the favorite as a way to celebrate hemp, and encourage people to “learn the rules and that they respect the vote,” Seattle Police Department Spokesman Sergeant Sean Whitcomb told the Stranger. The link — which sends individuals to SPD’s Marijua-what-now pamphlet –outlines the rules of I-502 and reminds citizens that recreational use of pot is legal, but selling and growing it remains illegal until I-502 is permitted and regulated by the state.

The funding for the chip handout came from a private foundation, and police plan to distribute about 1,000 bags of Doritos over the weekend. Whitcomb told the Stranger that cops will continue long-standing tradition and not issue tickets for public smoking at Hempfest. The spirit of Initiative 502 will govern the event, Holcomb said.  Hempfest starts at 12 p.m. Friday in Seattle’s Sculpture Park. It runs through 8 p.m. Sunday.
