(Scroll down for video) People were shocked to see a woman distributing free marijuana, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.
The good Samaritan who calls herself the “Weed Fairy,” gave away the marijuana to people in Seattle, Washington, over the weekend.
The supplies were handed out along with flyers. 23-year-old Yeni Sleidi, said that she does it to entertain people and to give them a break from their everyday stress.
Over the weekend she reportedly gave away 50 flyers along with the marijuana. “People mostly laughed,” Sleidi said on Wednesday.
The woman said that she first came up with the idea in New York, where she attracted a lot of attention. The pamphlets came with the message: “These are difficult times. Take this weed.”
The incident unfolded on Capitol Hill, a Seattle neighborhood known for its nightlife. Washington and Colorado, were the first two U.S. states to legalize recreational marijuana.
Sleidi said it was the first time she felt comfortable with her name attached to her works. “I do not feel comfortable doing this in other parts of the country where marijuana is illegal,” she said.
