Seattle police poke fun with pot guide

A mirthful guide to marijuana use, put together by police in Seattle, has become an internet hit as authorities gear up for the changes brought about by a ballot measure that legalised the drug.

The 'Marijwhatnow?' post on the Seattle Police Department's Blotter blog attempts to explain the new measure, which comes into force on December 6.

It has generated nearly 30,000 Facebook 'likes', with questions such as: "Will police officers be able to smoke marijuana?" Answer: "As of right now, no. This is still very complicated."

Complicating the matter for officials in Washington is the fact that their new laws conflict with federal legislation, which continues to outlaw marijuana.
