From the Seattle Times today, which reported on the legalization of pot at 12 a.m. this morning:

Officers will be advising people not to smoke in public, police spokesman Jonah Spangenthal-Lee wrote on the SPD Blotter. \”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.\”

He offered a catchy new directive referring to the film \”The Big Lebowski,\” popular with many marijuana fans: \”The Dude abides, and says `take it inside!\’\”
