Here is a partial picture of Pinehurst property crime for the month. Click on the map to enlarge it. There are only two instances of mail theft. Is everyone reported it every time it occurs, or is it getting better?
You can see ALL the types of crime at http://web5.seattle.gov/mnm/policereports.aspx. Select the North neighborhood and enter a date range.
Where can I buy marijuana in Seattle? A current list of the stores licensed by the Washington State Liquor Control Board is at www.seattle.gov/cityattorney/news/stay-informed.
Should I buy marijuana at a medical dispensary or collective garden? No! You should only patronize I-502 retailers licensed by the state. All other dispensaries and collective gardens are neither licensed nor regulated. They have no quality control or labeling requirements or safety guidelines, so you cannot know with certainty what you are buying or how much THC is in it. Anyone distributing marijuana without an I-502 licence is also committing a felony under both Washington and federal low. Unlicensed medical dispensaries may have an affirmative defense to criminal charges, but all are subject to arrest and criminal prosecution for distributing marijuana outside the I-502 system.
Should I buy marijuana in a park or on the street? No! The person selling it to you is committing felony delivery. State law allows only I-502 licensed stores to sell marijuana. There is no state certification or guarantee that you are getting quality, untainted marijuana if you buy from anyone other than an I-502 licensed store.
Where can I use marijuana? Marijuana can be used any place that is not in view of the general public. Streets, sidewalks, parks, and public places are all in the view of the general public. Marijuana use includes smoking, vaping and ingesting edibles.
Can I use marijuana in a park? No!
Can I smoke the marijuana? If you choose to smoke marijuana, you must comply with the open use laws as well as the smoking laws for the State of Washington. These are two separate infractions and could total well over $200 in fines if combined. Do not smoke marijuana in view of the general public and do not smoke it inside a business or within 25 feet of the entrance to a business. Check with your hotel/motel for any rooms where smoking might be permitted.
Can I take it home with me? Not if you live outside Washington State. Buy it here, enjoy it here.
Can I take it on an airplane? No!
The guest speaker this month was Brendan Brophy, attorney with the Seattle Attorney’s Office. He is the Office’s liaison with the North Precinct. He spoke about the Nuisance Properties Ordinance. It’s a tool police can use to deal with businesses and houses that have frequent nuisance activities. Orion Motel was one such property, and Fusion Ultra Lounge in the U District.
The precinct picnic will be July 11 near Ballard Commons, in conjunction with Ballard Seafoodfest. Mark your calendars!
We were given an update on design plans for the new precinct building. It will be on Aurora and 130th. Until the existing buildings on the new property are demolished in a little over a year, the city is looking into temporarily using one of them, Pi Bank, to house Mary’s Place, a homeless family shelter that has to move from its current location in South Lake Union.

From Fred McQueen:
Department of Transportation is preparing to roll out crack-seal crews and equipment. If weather is warm and dry the week of May 10th, crews will begin this seasonal work, applying low-tack sealant to pavement cracks to keep water from seeping under the street surface, helping to prevent potholes and other roadway damage. Crack-sealing continues throughout the summer.
The crack-filling work will be done at these locations:
Crews install “No Parking” signs on both sides of the street approximately 72 hours prior to the start of work, so the appearance of these signs is a good indication of when work will start on a particular street. The parking restrictions will be in effect from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will be removed as soon as the work is done, typically within a day.
Crews will close one lane at a time for approximately 3-4 hours for the operation and to allow the sealant to set. Traffic flaggers will assist and sidewalks will remain open at all times.
