Police Fine Weed-Laced Snack Vendor $513

(CBS Seattle) — The Seattle Police Department says one man was issued a fine for selling marijuana-laced snacks outside Hempfest Saturday.

Officers on bike patrol were out making sure street vendors had the proper permits when they noticed a man selling Rice Krispies Treats near Elliot Avenue and Bay Street, according to Seattle Police.

When asked if the treats contained marijuana, the man told police, “not too much, but a little.” He was selling them for $3 a piece, but did not have a license to do so.

Officers wrote the man a ticket for $513 for unlicensed vending and confiscated the snacks and destroyed them.
