Cops will hand-out Doritos at Washington's first post-legalization Hempfest

15.08.2013 15:53

Rather than arresting marijuana users, police officers will be giving them Doritos at this year’s “Hempfest,” an annual celebration that takes place in Washington state, where pot is now legalized for use by adults over the age of 21.

Re: Seattle Hempfest: Hemp is .....hemp, related to hopps, which makes beer. Hemp can be made into any product that is not metal or glass. Shouldn't a Hempfest (two words combined) "Hemp" & "Festival" be about hemp, and not cannabis? In my opinion, it's like having a pigroast at a Muslem wedding. Doritoes eh, at least it's muticultural?

I can't help but wonder: why are they almost 'promoting' the use of marijuana in the US now, when they all were so fiercely against it before? Simply to tax the stuff? Or is there more going on behind the scenes?

  


GW Pharma isn't putting hundreds of millions into California because they're "in it to help people." It's ALL about profits, now.

We need to REPEAL prohibition, and get the "profit movite" out of it once and for all.

I read an article just a few days ago about Doritos being tested, and found to have 8 different strains of corn. Sounds fairly innocuous, huh? If the article was true, all 8 strains of corn were GENETICALLY MODIFIED. Not one of them was natural corn.

What is being billed as a "public relations coup of the millennium" is really just a corporation making sure that another corporation gets free advertising.

I can't help but wonder how many people are going to get arrested, with the "totally cool, munchie-bearing fuzz" this year.

REPEA L CANNABIS PROHIBITION. Then it's over.

Don't ? Then it ain't.

Your call. Again.

"Ch ill out, smoke some pot. There's nothing wrong in the Middle-East, geo-engineering is a fairy tale and there's definitely nothing discussed at the Bilderberg conferences. Shadow government? Get off of that bath salt, man..."
Cou ld work out either way. Maybe more people will take a step back and notice the true face of their beloved 'democracy'.

Dorritos is one of the US companies that produce tortilla chips who have not switched to white corn and continue to use yellow GM corn.

That and perhaps the police should distribute healthier snacks, seeing as how this is part of their job now. As a constable once said to me, "Part of our job is customer service." This does take it to another level.

Well, this is a first. How about throwing in some bacon

@John.... The Illegalization of pot has very little, if anything to do with industrial competition. There's only one reason .....taxes. Every decision the government makes is about money, they could not care less about your health. It's virtually impossible to keep track of all the independant,small time growers. So, if the Fed can't get a cut, no one can. Period. Wonder what the tax is on a dime bag? Prob $20

If it really is legal to possess small amounts, you can get the price down to a very manageable level. Grow your own.
