Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes told the City Council Monday morning that he will seek dismissal of about 100 tickets for public marijuana use after a single police officer was found to have written the vast majority of the citations as part of a political agenda.

 Holmes told the council the “cleanest and most efficient thing to do is vacate all tickets … hit the reset button.”
