fkn serious... If I had known while planning my ski trip, I might have gone to silverton instead of SLC haha
it hasn't yet been established, as of now all thats set in stone is the recreational use and not being ticketed for up to an ounce, I think they have like a year to make a plan for selling it in stores...
This post from the seattle police department this morning made me laugh my ass off;
In an email to officers, the department told them they should only issue verbal warnings in cases of public marijuana use "until further notice.”
Police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee wrote on the SPD Blotter that officers will be advising people to take their weed inside.
Or as Spangenthal-Lee put it: "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.”
Once police start actually enforcing the law, it will be a $50 fine.
which is weird because smoking outside is still illegal-- so i guess the celebration isn't so much about legalizing marijuana, as it is a celebration that law enforcement said they'd issue warnings for illegal weed smoking rather than arrests.
