Are police officers really all inflexible drug warriors?  Aren’t cops against drug legalization and for the War on Drugs?  A lot of folks I talk to believe that police officers all think alike and they are all big supporters of the War on Drugs.  Police officers in Seattle pretty much blew that myth out of the water by joining in the statewide celebration following voter approval of legal marijuana.  (See the article.)

At a Hempfest event in Seattle, officers handed out bags of Doritos to the crowd in an operation they code-named “Orange Fingers.”  Flyers with information on the new law were attached to the Doritos.

Thanks to the Seattle Police Department for handling the situation with humor and goodwill.
