Seattle Area May Shift Cannabis Funds from Sheriff’s Office

The King County, Washington City Council is considering shifting cannabis-derived funds from the county Sheriff’s Office and instead using the $4.6 million for community programs and a program to help individuals vacate cannabis-related convictions and settle court fees, fines, and restitution, Marijuana Moment reports.  

Under King County Executive Dow Constantine’s (D) plan, $2.8 million of the county’s cannabis-derived funds would be earmarked for “a program to help individuals vacate convictions of marijuana-related offenses that are no longer illegal, and settle unpaid court fines, fees, and restitution that could lead to incarceration,” according to the report. The remaining $1.8 million would be used for community programs aimed at employment and youth cannabis prevention.
