Munchies from marijuana festival fetch $50 onlineAugust 19, 2013 @ 3:39 pm
SEATTLE (AP) - A few eBay users are seeing a money-making opportunity in the free bags of chips that were given out by police over the weekend at Seattle's pot festival known as Hempfest.
An unopened Doritos bag from Hempfest had drawn eight bids by Monday afternoon, pushing the price to $58. One bag listed as "used" was fetching $50.
The nacho-cheese-flavored Doritos were a popular topic surrounding the event because Seattle police distributed them for free along with stickers designed to inform pot consumers about the state's legal pot law.
Officers handed out only 1,000 bags of chips at an event that draws as many as 85,000 people per day.
