CapeCodOnline.com – A woman who goes by the “Weed Fairy” distributed free nuggets of marijuana to people in Seattle over Memorial Day weekend, taping the free pot on fliers around a city neighborhood.
The woman, 23-year-old Yeni Sleidi, says she does it to amuse people and to give them a break from everyday stress.
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 actions, though, 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.
The fliers posted in Seattle came with the message: “These are tough times. Take this weed.” Sleidi posted her free marijuana in one Seattle’s most urban neighborhoods, known for its nightlife and counter-culture.
We just wanted to let Yeni Sleidi know that there is a one way ticket waiting for her at Sea Tac airport in Seattle. Yeni if you are reading this, please board at gate 9, there will be a limo waiting for you at Logan to drive you to Cape Cod.
We aren’t going through a government shutdown or anything but we did just barely survive Memorial Day weekend and I’m 178% sure that a nugget and a note that reads “These are tough times. Take this weed.” would be much appreciated by everyone on this peninsula.
Fucking Seattle. They have a Weed Fairy. I’m not a grass is greener kind of person, but holy shit.
