Who would’ve thought the cool thing to do at Hempfest would be to run toward cops, instead of away from them? After Seattle police’s weekend supply of Doritos ran out lickety-split at the festival celebrating all things pot, the only natural result is a smattering of eBay listings for the chips.

Now that marijuana is legal in the state of Washington, the role of police at Seattle’s yearly Hempfest is changing just a teeny bit.

Grocery shopping recently, reader Joseph noticed something interesting: there were two different types of Doritos bags on the shelf that were very close in size, but the same price.

You know the couple — they start all cute, engage in a little PDA, one of them launches a line of wildly successful tacos using the other’s flavor, and then all of a sudden they’re all over Twitter, gushing at each other in public and making the rest of us cringe.
