    so is it legal to smoke it inside public buildings (i.e. your club) or is it only legal outside like tobacco ?

    Robert, smoking anything inside a public space or accommodation is illegal in Seattle. Also, pot, like booze, is being overseen by the Washington State Liquor Control Board and public drinking is also against the law, as is public pot smoking. It’ll get you a $100 ticket but the Seattle PD have no intention of enforcing that regulation for a while it seems. So there’s a lot of out of doors grass smoking going on.

    Saw this from HuffPost few days ago.

    http://spdblotter.seattle.gov/2012/12/05/officers-shall-not-take-any-enforcement-action-other-than-to-issue-a-verbal-warning-for-a-violation-of-i-502/

    So why won’t SPD be citing people for openly using marijuana in public? Here’s where things get a bit complicated for your friendly neighborhood police department: the Seattle Police Department is in the business of law enforcement and, as of today, the Revised Code of Washington or Seattle Municipal Code don’t contain anything that gives officers clear direction on how to deal with the provisions of I-502 prohibiting public use of marijuana. What’s more, it could take at least another 30 days for the state or city to craft legislation which would give officers the ability to cite not-so-courteous people for lighting up in public.

    Does this mean you should flagrantly roll up a mega-spliff and light up in the middle of the street? No. If you’re smoking pot in public, officers will be giving helpful reminders to folks about the rules and regulations under I-502 (like not smoking pot in public). But 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.

    Scott — thanks for responding .. seems pretty much like SF. One of the things that always surprises me here is if you go to a concert as soon as the music starts and the lights go down a whole pile of people toke up .. I suppose they may have medical cards but no one every does anything about them … :-)
