Seattle is losing out on good police recruits by disallowing cannabis users the honor of serving. We need police who represent our people, and 74% of Seattle voters support legal pot. Plus, pot will make for mellower cops.

Letter to
Police Chief John Diaz
Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn
Let cops use pot! Specifically, please stop disqualifying new recruits who use cannabis, and modify the employment policy that disallows off-duty cannabis use by Seattle police. I request this change because:

1. We need police who represent our people, and 74% of Seattle voters support legal pot.

2. Seattle is losing out on good police recruits by disallowing cannabis users the honor of serving.

3. Pot will make for mellower cops.
