The skinny: 'Weed fairy' gives out pot across Seattle

Unexpected treat

'Weed fairy' gives out pot across Seattle

A woman who calls herself 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 fliers posted in Seattle came with the message: "These are tough times. Take this weed. And keep your spirits high."

High School Hijinks

Photos altered in Utah yearbook

A group of Utah high school students said they were surprised and upset to discover their school yearbook photos were digitally altered, with sleeves and higher necklines drawn on to cover bare skin. Several students at Wasatch High School in Heber City said their outfits were in line with the public school's dress code. The Wasatch County School District said in a statement Thursday that students were warned when yearbook photos were taken last fall that images might be altered if students violated dress standards.

Record-breaking feat
