WA: Marijuana A Complete Guide to Legal Marijuana Use In Seattle

Are you lucky enough to live in Washington State? Are you still dazed and confused regarding I-502 and the ultimate implementation? As most are aware on November 6th you (Washington) and Colorado were handed the ultimate holiday gift… marijuana legalization.

As a means of clearing up a little bit of the haze around the topic of I-502 implementation, Seattle’s police Department prepared a blog as a means of demonstrating to the general public that Seattle’s PD has got their backs.

In a recent hilarious online lampoon posted with the help of Seattle’s Police Department, the good-natured self-deprecation suggests Seattle’s  PD is absolutely fine with the overall public sentiment of marijuana legalization and have taken  it in good spirits.

Marij-whatnow? This sidesplitting guide to staying out of trouble when attempting to use Legal Marijuana In Seattle—informing us blithely of the ins and outs of I-502’s weed regulation. A relatively down-to-earth dissertation complete with easy-to-understand verbiage. So basic in its Non-legalese that even the most Irie smokers would clearly understand.

There’s even a handy “TL;DR” (too long; didn’t read) section to sum things up.

Can I legally carry around an ounce of marijuana?

According to the recently passed initiative, beginning December 6th, adults over the age of 21 will be able to carry up to an ounce of marijuana for personal use. Please note that the initiative says it “is unlawful to open a package containing marijuana…in view of the general public,” so there’s that. Also, you probably shouldn’t bring pot with you to the federal courthouse (or any other federal property).


Can I smoke pot outside my home? Like at a park, magic show, or the Bite of Seattle?


Much like having an open container of alcohol in public, doing so could result in a civil infraction—like a ticket—but not arrest. You can certainly use marijuana in the privacy of your own home. Additionally, if smoking a cigarette isn’t allowed where you are (say, inside an apartment building or flammable chemical factory), smoking marijuana isn’t allowed there either.


December 6th seems like a really long ways away. What happens if I get caught with marijuana before then?


Hold your breath. Your case will be processed under current state law. However, there is already a city ordinance making marijuana enforcement the lowest law enforcement priority.


SPD seized a bunch of my marijuana before I-502 passed. Can I have it back?


No. Source


  • Sorry, I think it should be legalized in the nation, but the Feds have to intercede on this. State laws cannot supersede federal law. Just as we have legalized abortion, we can’t allow Oklahoma or Mississippi say it’s state rights to ban abortion
