Hempfest munchies fetch $60 on eBay

SEATTLE -- A few eBay users are seeing a money-making opportunity in the free bags of chips that were given out by Seattle police over the weekend at Hempfest.

An unopened Doritos bag from Hempfest had drawn eight bids by Monday afternoon, pushing the price to $58. One bag listed as "used" was fetching $50. Other listings for the bags of chips had bids over $60.

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.

Officers handed out only 1,000 bags of chips at an event that draws as many as 85,000 people per day.
