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.

Can you say "Cool Cops"? Nice how these ones are reacting in a reasonable manner.  And no, only the original bags are collector's items.
