The Seattle Police humorously blog about legal marijuana

By Jack Brummet, Seattle Metro Editor

The Seattle Police Department blog, which has been way out front of the legalized pot issue since the beginning, released their temporary enforcement policy today.  And they capped it with a picture of the Dude from The Big Lebowski.  Read their entire blog post here.

Some choice tidbits:
"Does this mean you should flagrantly roll up a mega-spliff and light up in the middle of the street? No. If you’re smoking pot in public, officers will be giving helpful reminders to folks about the rules and regulations under I-502 (like not smoking pot in public)."
"the police department believes that, under state law, you may responsibly get baked, order some pizzas and enjoy a Lord of the Rings marathon in the privacy of your own home, if you want to."
"In the meantime, in keeping with the spirit of I-502, the department’s going to give you a generous grace period to help you adjust to this brave, new, and maybe kinda stoned world we live in."
"As we’ve told you here on the Blotter, if you’re over 21, then starting December 6th you can use marijuana, and possess marijuana—up to an ounce of marijuana buds, 16 ounces of solid marijuana-infused product, like cookies, or 72 ounces of infused liquid, like oil."
