I’m glad that at least one Seattle police officer is committed to enforcing the law against marijuana use in public [“SPD Probes cop who wrote 80 percent of pot-use tickets,” Local News, July 30]. He should be congratulated, not investigated. I get the sense that most officers are looking the other way when they observe this problem, or at most they issue a toothless warning. And I also get the impression that City Attorney Pete Holmes is not at all interested in enforcing this aspect of the pot legalization law.
Unless a clear message is sent that you can’t smoke pot in public, by issuing citations and going after those scofflaws who don’t pay the fine, those who use pot will continue to ignore the law, and it will become an increasing problem.
