I like how subby leaves out that they aren't going to charge anyone or investigate at all, they're just keeping public land from becoming a pot farm.

Sir Eric

Why should the police be involved at all? Doesn't Seattle employ, you know, gardeners to take care of the parks?

Yes they do, and  for anyone who wants to do research near seattle there is an Island which has a park dedicated to Luther Burbank who was like the einstein of botany or something.

From the 70s to the early 80s the gardeners who worked there paid homage to the great botanist by growing stuff like that in the middle of giant hollowed out rings of blackberry bushes, complete with camouflaged access tunnels.

until they were busted by some joyriding flying eyes in the sky.

You want legal weed nationally, quit handing them reasons to hate you. It's quite simple, polysci 101.

Seriously? They finally get it legalized then pull this kind of shiat?

This is why we can't have nice things.

No, I mean, who the fark thinks it's cool to just start planting in public? Unless it's anti-marijuana activity, designed to make legalization look like a bad idea...


We don't need cheap stunts to make legalisation look like a bad idea.

So smoking it is legal but growing it in parks is illegal and I should be outraged that the cops put a stop to the illegal one. Got it.

Yeah, O.K. It'll take a little time to sort everything out. So long as no one was arrested then:


Meh.

ISO15693: and that it takes the smallest of nudges to get them ranting loudly about how much better the world would be upon global legalization (without realizing that their ranting is one of the things that scares people about pot)


The world would be better with global legalization, simply by virtue of people not being locked up for stupid bullshiat.

People with problems with any behavior will continue to justify their problems with it regardless of what you do.

Elandriel: I am having trouble getting upset about police getting rid of pot plants growing in a public park.  Especially since that's the end of it...they got rid of 'em...and won't be investigating.


If there is one thing I've learned from the pro-pot crowd, it's that smoking it makes one extremely sensitive to anything and everything related to it, and that it takes the smallest of nudges to get them ranting loudly about how much better the world would be upon global legalization (without realizing that their ranting is one of the things that scares people about pot)

True, the ranting wears off by adulthood for most, but the ones where it doesn't.. eek.

When I used to smoke crappy pot that had seeds in it I liked to save up the seeds until I was walking the dog through a park, the I'd play Davey Potseed and distribute a few hundred near the trails. I figured the cops would be proud of themselves when they busted those and kept millions of dollars of herb off the streets.

Maybe someone copied that concept.

To my mind, if you plant cannabis in a public park, that's like planting corn.  First, why the fark would you do that?  and second, it won't be there when it's ready for harvest.

Imagine 5 twelve yr old boys using google and injesting a lb each. I'm all for legalization, but not in a public park. Sorry stoners. You won, everyone is happy...use some common sense, please. You will screw it up for the rest of us.

Seattle's been very lax in pot enforcement for a while now.  Even though Washington state laws were kinda harsh up until this recent election, Seattle's law enforcement operated under a policy of making pot possession "the lowest possible priority."  Basically, if you get busted committing some other crime and you had weed on you, they'd tack that on.
