What role do police play in a society run by adolescent moonbats? Seattle offers an indication:
A few things will be different at this year’s Hempfest, the 22-year-old summer “protestival” on Seattle’s waterfront where tens of thousands of revelers gather to use dope openly, listen to music and gaze at the Olympic Mountains in the distance.
The haze of pot smoke might smell a little more like victory, after Washington and Colorado became the first states to legalize marijuana use by adults over 21. …
Seattle police — who have long turned a lenient eye on Hempfest tokers — don’t plan to be writing tickets or making arrests. They’ll be busy handing out Doritos.
This is not a joke. Here’s how the kooks running the Seattle PD justify passing out munchies to people who are still violating both state and federal law by smoking dope in public:
The department has affixed labels to 1,000 bags of Doritos urging people to check out a question-and-answer post on its website, titled “Marijwhatnow? A Guide to Legal Marijuana Use In Seattle.” It explains some of the nuances of Washington’s law: that adults can possess up to an ounce but can’t sell it or give it away, that driving under the influence of pot is illegal, and that – festivals aside – public use is illegal.
I’m sure the kite-high celebrants — for whom ignoring the law is a tradition at Hempfest — will study the “nuances of Washington’s law” carefully through the murky cannabis haze that serves them as consciousness.
