Editorial: Adjustment needed to new norms of marijuana

Setting a new norm for public marijuana consumption requires better civic behavior, state legislation and — the actions of one rogue cop set aside — enforcement of the law.

THE one-man protest against legal marijuana waged by Seattle Police Officer Randy Jokela made a joke of a serious new law.

The veteran cop wrote 80 percent of the city’s public marijuana consumption citations over the last six months, according to new city data. He showed contempt for the law, voters and his bosses in scribbling ad hominem commentaries on infractions, including ones he apparently wrote based on a coin flip. Regrettable behavior, indeed.
