'Weed Fairy' gives away 'gifts' to keep people feeling high in Capitol Hill

'Weed Fairy' Gives Away Marijuana In Seattle's Capitol Hill

Someone in Seattle is working to keep morale in the city high -- literally.

HLN reports "One woman has been going around Seattle leaving pot for anybody who wants to pick it up. She calls herself the weed fairy."

According to KING Yeni Sleidi is going around Seattle's Capitol Hill posting fliers with her Twitter handle, a kind message and a nugget of marijuana taped to them.

Sleidi told KCPQ she's visiting from California for just a few weeks. But during her short stay, she says she's trying to make people a little more ... relaxed.

"I decided to give it out to people during the government shutdown, and people's reaction was instantly positive."

And Sleidi says her method is tried and true. She says she did something similar in New York a few months ago, and the positive feedback she got on Twitter made her want to keep spreading the love.

Even Jimmy Fallon caught wind of her mission. On 'The Tonight Show,' Fallon said, "Thank you, anonymous stranger who's been leaving free bags of marijuana in New York City subway stations."

With pot now legal in Washington, the weed fairy says she's not too worried about getting arrested -- and Seattle police say they're not actively pursuing her, but they are concerned residents under 21 could take it.

KCPQ reports, "The marijuana, once it's out there in that format, it's really unregulated, and it could fall into anybody's hands."

But Sleidi says she tries to post her fliers in areas where that won't happen. No word on where the weed fairy plans to strike next.

This is discussing. I hope they catch her and put her in jail. Not only is pot illegal but she's telling people to escape their problem by getting high. What a great role model. What ever happened to being an adult and sorting out your own problems, without drugs? I do it everyday.

Or having a cup of coffee ? Or an aspirin, Or a soda. Those things just make you want to give up also. Right ?

Quitters give up it has nothing to do with any of the above. Get a grip !

medically its not illigel for many people who use it to help contol their pain ect. Get a clue and join the current world. Alcohol does alot more damge and alot of people are in our prisons because of it. You don't see alot of eeople whinning and complaining about that.

I love it! Absolutely charming. Of course there will be a vicious backlash ... and then we'll see the ugly face of conservativism and the cops will have a field day ... heck better locate these nuggets FAST .. to heck with rapists and robberies. Law enforcement will be mobilized immediately to deal with this threat to our children.

Lighten up .... give us a break.

this is what drug dealers do to en trap kids/people into becoming drug addicts-give away freebies until your hooked and then they charge more and more for the same amount. remember how eve condemned us all to be born into sin-women to suffer birth pains and man to toil the earth til the day they die. this should make anyone who sees her little flyer with a bit of marijuana stuck to it think twice before doing what the flyer says.

I will agree with you on the point that leaving this where kids may get ahold of it is not smart...But...Marijuana is not physically addictive...Quit smoking and all that will happen is some temporary boredom...
