The woman, 23-year-old Yeni Sleidi, says does it to amuse people and to give them a break from everyday stress.
    
She says the idea came to her during the government shutdown when many of her friends were stressed. Her flyers that said "these are tough times. Take this weed. & keep your spirits high."
    
Sleidi said she felt comfortable attaching her name to her deeds in Seattle because recreational marijuana has been legalized in Washington state.
