SEATTLE, WA. -- The Seattle Police have decided not only to patrol and keep a close eye on Hempfest, but also educate festival go-ers in a way that seems to really hit home.

For the first time, a police department is handing out munchies, Doritos specifically to the party goers.

Hempfest is Part party, part protest and part victory celebration after the legalization of pot in Washington.

A lot of marijuana lovers are there.

The bag of munchies includes a humorous but serious legal manifesto, laying out the law.

The department says their website has gotten nearly half a million hit all over the Doritos.

And a donor picked up the tab.
