Pelley and two other attorneys wrote a letter to city officials, demanding they return the items or pay nearly $1 million, the estimated value of the property. The mayor signed off on the return of the pot, and Pelley picked it up Tuesday.

Attorney math?

Deputy Chief Bryan Stanifer says the police department wasn't happy about returning the marijuana, but also wasn't interested in facing a lawsuit.

They were just fine with confiscation for no reason, however.

I remember watching Cops one time (didn't know the location). The cop gets a call that a woman said her pot plants were stolen by her neighbor. I figured they were going to arrest her. The cop shows up, listens to the story, goes next door, finds out the neighbor's brother took them (and hid them), and the cops returned her plants.

The cop then says "Ya know, a year ago and we would've arrested her. Now we're helping her. Times are changing."

So the cops had no legal right to the seizure and now they're "not happy"?  fark them sideways.

they should have to pay to replace the dead plants based on the cop math when the seized the plants.

$1,000,000 worth of moldy, un-smokable weed. Thanks for nothing.

Yep. That's Lynnwood cops for you. Improper seizure, damaged property, and still they whine about having to return it.

They're not happy about giving it back because they can no longer smoke it themselves.

Headso: they should have to pay to replace the dead plants based on the cop math when the seized the plants.


Cop maths when seizing and kindergarten maths when giving it back.

It was worth a million when they seized it but as it's all dried up and unsmokable now, it's worth $10.

I forgot...

Fark the cops!

"We weren't happy about returning this material that we took illegally, but they were going to sue us, so we had to."

What a bunch of assholes.

Yeah, but if that was the case they would also be hanging out with kings and presidents.

This is just sad.  Police are pissed that they have to return property they seized when that seizure didn't even lead to a trial, much less a conviction.  If this isn't a good reason to at least revisit, if not repeal, asset forfeiture laws, I don't know what is.

Up the ass with a large cactus?

/pineapple buttplug'd probably work too.

Now that they have the dead plants and ruined weed, they should sue anyway for unlawful destruction of property.

Not sure about no legal right to seizure.  Article doesn't say that.  The amount of pot found was pretty large. 202 plants and 6 pounds drying.

Unless the law states that they have to interview the patient and verify it's "prescribed" before carrying out a raid they may have operated legally.

Sure, hindsight says they wasted time because they lacked the information, but what is the alternative?  Get in touch with every suspect and ask them?  Raids are performed specifically because suspects with warning will get rid of illegal things on their own.

It would be different if it being legal because of medical reasons were the norm, but it is not.  Oh, the excuse is used plenty, but it's not valid much of the time.

A smart non-criminal would have let the police know before hand.  "I know this is illegal for most people, but my doctor says X, and according to state law, I am legal."(likely though, if you're a pot smoker, it's smarter to have your lawyer do it).

Same way Hollywood works with local government to shut down streets and such for filming. Good idea for anything that's normally illegal to the point of them constantly being on the lookout for it but actually ok under certain circumstances.

Sure, you're watched like a hawk, cops wanting to know if you're selling or doing other illegal things with it, but it beats damaged property and the hassle of it all.  Being watched like that is inevitable unless they never suspect a thing.
