On the same day that medical marijuana became available for the first time in New Jersey (Montclair), law enforcement officials on the other side of the country had something to say about marijuana now being legalized in their state.

According to SeattlePi.com, police officers in Seattle, Washington will be advising people to take their marijuana inside. It is now legal to carry up to an ounce of pot on you at anytime in the state of Washington as of today. Officers will be issuing verbal warnings in cases of public marijuana use until further notice.

By far the greatest part of this story is the quote added by Seattle police spokesperson, Jonah Spangenthal-Lee.

The police department believes that, under state law, you may responsibly get baked, order some pizzas and enjoy a 'Lord of the Rings' marathon in the privacy of your own home, if you want to.
