What should you do if you were ticketed for smoking marijuana in public by Officer Randy Jokela, the cop who, it recently was revealed, wrote 80 percent of all the city’s pot tickets? Seattle city attorney Pete Holmes, the city’s chief prosecutor, says, “My hope is that the people who received the tickets do not pay them.”

Only 6 percent of the tickets, which are punishable by a $27 fine plus additional fees, have been paid thus far, according to police.
