Marijuana smokers, would you toke up on pot nuggets taped to a flyer on a telephone pole in the street? That's what one woman in Seattle did for tokers this past holiday weekend.
Recreational marijuana use is legal in Washington. Her flyers read
, "These are tough times. Take this weed. And keep your spirits high."
Yeni Sleidi, 23, says she likes giving away little stalks of herb in this fashion "to amuse people and to give them a break from everyday stress."
On Twitter, she's @danksyappleweed. Apparently, she's the same person who did this in New York previously.
She said 50 fliers had nuggets taped to them. "People mostly laughed," Sleidi said Wednesday.
The woman said she first came up with the idea in New York, where she lived during the government shutdown, because several of her friends were affected by it. She wanted to distract them from the stress. Her passing out the pot in the Big Apple drew plenty of coverage from the media.
"I'm not sure what the thought process was but I thought people would be amused by it," she said.
Sleidi posted her free marijuana in Capitol Hill, one of Seattle's most urban neighborhoods, known for its nightlife and counterculture.
