SEATTLE — Police may have looked the other way as Hempfest folks smoked marijuana — but a guy nearby trying to sell $3 Rice Krispies Treats with “a little” pot in them got a $513 fine.

The Seattle Police Department’s online crime blotter said that at about 5:30 p.m. Saturday, bike patrol officers were riding around the streets outside Hempfest, making sure street venders had the proper permits, when they came upon the man sitting in a chair selling his “crispy” treats.

“When officers asked the man if the treats were laced with marijuana, he told them they contained ‘a little. Not too much, but a little.’

“And, of course, the man didn’t have any licenses for his roadside snack shop,” the blotter said.

Cops wrote the man a $513 ticket for unlicensed vending and seized “his stash — 94 Rice Krispy squares,” the blotter said, adding that the officers destroyed them.
