Seattle Cop responsible for 80% of marijuana tickets

A Seattle police officer was recently reassigned after it was discovered he was responsible for over 80% of marijuana tickets over the past 6 months. Additionally, the report indicated that African Americans were disproportionately targeted for public marijuana consumption.

A spokesman said the SPD recognized the numbers were disproportionate, and O'Toole reiterated on Wednesday that the study was designed to provide more oversight and to flag "anomalies or outliers" in Seattle's marijuana enforcement.
