No Jokela: Seattle Tosses All Pot Tickets After Single Officer Opposing Legalization...


Seattle's city prosecutor has announced a rather novel decision to toss out all tickets issued for the public use of marijuana through the first seven months of this year after concluding that virtually all of them were written by one officer who opposed the legalization of pot. City Attorney Pete Holmes announced the dismissal of roughly 100 tickets and moving to refund those people who forked over $27 ticket. Officer, Randy Jokela, 52, reportedly addressed some of the tickets to "Petey Holmes" or wrote that he considered the pot law "silly."

 The fact that one officer would write roughly 80 percent of the tickets for a single crime is a rather telling indicator of abuse.
