The Seattle Police Department will be joining in the festivities this weekend by handing out informational munchies to stoners at Hempfest 2013.

Sergeant Sean Whitcomb said the department intends to use the opportunity to spread the word about new 2012 marijuana laws, by attaching a summarized version to bags of Doritos, the Daily Mail reported.

The new laws allow anyone to legally possess up to an ounce of recreational marijuana.

Titled “Marijwhatnow?,” local police are hoping the guide will resonate if they’re posted on the delicious snack food.

Police will hand out 1,000 bags of Doritos at Hempfest 2013, a three-day festival which is expected to attract around 200,000 people, the Mail reported.

“We’re there to let people know what the rules are,” Sergeant Whitcomb said, who is also expected to speak at the festival.

“We wanted to do something in a fun way that said, ‘look this is cool and everything but the rules are the rules,’ ” he said.
