If you left a garbage bag full of pot plant clippings on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning, it’s sitting inside the Seattle Police Department evidence room.
Seattle Police were dispatched to 16th and E Madison around 10:40 AM Tuesday after a caller reported finding a large bag full of marijuana clippings and plant debris scattered on the sidewalk nearby. According to SPD radio traffic, the bag didn’t appear to have any usable marijuana flowers.
SPD will probably not be investigating.
“It’s like finding a beer bottle,” said SPD spokesperson Patrick Michaud.
While retail pot is now legal in the state, there are no facilities CHS is aware of licensed to grow or process recreational marijuana in the immediate vicinity of 16th and Madison. But you might expect to see similar additions to are yard waste soon. Under new medical marijuana laws taking effect, patients will be able to grow up to four plants at home.
