From Ebay

SEATTLE — Bags of Doritos passed out by the Seattle Police Department during Hempfest this past weekend drew national attention.

Now, they’re drawing a fine price.

Single bags of the snack-sized Doritos are selling for as much as $26 each on the auction site Ebay. The bags feature an informational note about I-502, the initiative legalizing recreational marijuana in Washington state, reminding users about the “Do’s and Don’ts” of the initiative.

The SPD reminded smokers it was illegal to sell or give pot to anyone under 21, and encouraged individuals to listen to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon at a reasonable volume.

A bidder selling eight of the 1,000 bags handed out at Hempfest has already seen bids climb to as high as $53. A normal snack-sized bag of Doritos costs around 99 cents.

    One of the bags of Doritos on ebay will benefit the Southern Oregon Four, who are some of the latest victims in the war on drugs.

    Operation Orange Fingers will benefit these four people by a (hopefully huge) bid.
    The police are now changing their response tactics. We need to end this horrific drug war that has cost thousands, if not millions, of shattered lives.

    Bidding on the one bag could help end the drug war sooner.

      None of the listings by the eBay seller refenced in this article state any such thing. If you are the seller, perhaps you may want to edit your listing to reflect this. Otherwise, please back off of the bs!

        Nevermind… I did a search on eBay, and found your listing. Please accept my apologies. I had already been following the first seller to post these on eBay, which this article featured, and thought your comment was regarding one of his listings.
