Lynnwood Police return 6 pounds of pot to patients

The city of Lynnwood has returned 202 dead marijuana plants and 6 pounds of drying pot that was seized from a group of medical marijuana patients more than a year ago.

Our news partner, the Seattle Times, notes that Seattle lawyer Aaron Pelley says Lynnwood police seized the marijuana, as well as lights and other growing equipment, during a raid in May 2012. He says the patients were following the state’s medical marijuana law, and no criminal charges were filed.

Pelley and two other attorneys wrote a letter to the city, demanding city officials return the items or pay nearly $1 million, the estimated value of the property. The mayor signed off on the return of the pot, and Pelley picked it up Tuesday.
