Seattle cops give pot dealers warning letters

SEATTLE — Seattle police are handing out warning letters to some marijuana dealers contacted by undercover narcotics detectives.

Although Washington voters legalized the possession of a small amount of marijuana, it’s still illegal to sell or use the drug in public. The state is drafting rules for licensed dealers to start selling marijuana by the end of the year.

Seattle police say they gave out six “admonishment letters” last week in a sweep of drug dealers in the University District.
